The 135 meter long, 7575 dwt chemical tanker Kenos Athena sank off Guandong, China. The tanker was headed to Zhuhai from Ulsan with 7000 metric tons of sulfuric acid when it suffered water ingress. The flooding could not be controlled and the Kenos Athena developed a severe list. The master of the vessel requested assistance and a nearby fishing vessel responded. All 18 crewmen on board were safely rescued and no reported injuries. The tanker eventually listed some 40 degrees before it capsized and sank. No signs of pollution at the surface, but there are concerns that the acid or the 140 tons of fuel oil will be released. Authorities have place monitors around the site.
