A cargo ship sank after two vessels collided in the waters of the Thousand Islands on Friday early morning.
Thousand Islands Police chief Comr. Roy Rando said that the KM Bhaita Jaya Samudra hit a motor vessel, the MT Elizabeth, in the waters around Damar Island.
“The cargo vessel hit the motor vessel, leaving a hole in the MT Elizabeth's hull,” said Boy as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com.
Boy added that the MT Elizabeth was listing severely, but had yet to sink. The vessel was reportedly carrying waste from a crude palm oil processing plant.
