This is an original press photo. Santiago Angura ship's Chilean mechanic. Stranded crew's pay battle ends in hollow victory. Jose Vilchez is a short, stocky Peruvian sailor with a bitter story to tell about his unplanned stay in New Orleans. "I want to forget everything that has happened to me in the last few months" he said. "I have gone through every privation, including hunger, which I had never experienced before in my life." Vilciez is an electrician aboard the Gilini, a rusting, ill fated freighter that has been stranded in the Mississippi River across from the Chalmette Battlefield since September. Without money or visas, Vilchez and his fellow 16 crewmen, all foreigners, have been virtual prisoners of the ship. Photo measures 8 x 10.25inches. Photo is dated 02-03-1986.
