The 114 meter long, 2778 dwt freighter Zorbey went aground off the coast of Demre, Turkey. The Zorbey, loaded with 3,000 tons of wheat, suffered damage in its engine room and water ingress. The master contacted the Coast Guard stating the Zorbey was in danger of sinking. The Coast Guard dispatched vessels to the scene and took seven crew off the Zorbey. The other crew remained on board and attempted to dewater the vessel. Reports state that 25 tons of diesel fuel leaked from the vessel into the sea. Authorities have placed booms around the Zorbey to prevent the pollution from spreading. No reports of injuries of the 15 crew. Authorities are providing support to help refloat the freighter.
