The condition of a stricken cargo ship stuck on a reef and leaking oil off the coast of New Zealand worsened on Wednesday, with about 70 containers falling overboard and the vessel moving onto a steeper lean. Aerial footage shows the ship has a large crack on one side and is listing sharply. Hundreds of tons of heavy fuel oil have spilled from the hull, leading New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key to call it the country's biggest maritime environmental disaster.
