The 55 meter long, 668 gt hopper vessel Combattant sank on the Rhône River near Beaucaire, France. The Combattant was pushing a barge when it struck a mooring. The vessel suffered damage to the hull and water ingress quickly flooded the vessel until it sank with just the top of the wheelhouse only visible. No reports of injuries and no pollution was released. A boom was placed around the vessel to contain any possible pollution.
