Two seafarers have been taken to hospital in Bermuda with suspected cases of malaria.

The men were taken from the 50,000-dwt Alpine Legend (built 2010) after falling ill on a voyage between Cape Verde and Charleston.

The Filipinos were brought ashore on board a pilot boat, the Bermuda Sun reported.

One was discharged on Wednesday.

The tanker is operated by ST Shipping & Transport of Singapore.
