Boat sinks with cargo at commercial harbour

A boat loading goods at the commercial harbour in Malé sank on Saturday (August 30), reports local media.

According to the Maldives Ports Limited (MPL), the accident occurred around 1:30am after it was loaded with wood and timber.

The boat reportedly became heavier than the floating point of a vessel of its size. No one was harmed in the incident.

The submerged vessel has since been pulled out with assistance from the Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF).

  1. I may have dropped out from grade 8, but even I know what a plimsoll line is and how to read it.

    When can we get some proper education for our maritime staff?
