The 37 meter long fishing vessel Amazon went aground off Gustav, Finland. The Amazon was able to refloat itself and proceeded towards Naantali. The Finnish Coast Guard vessel Uisko was dispatched to the scene. The Coast Guard found all four crew uninjured, but found the Amazon was leaking fuel oil into the sea. The Amazon had suffered three large holes in its hull after the grounding including the fuel tank. The Uisko had the vessel’s engine stopped and had a tug requested to tow the vessel. The fishing vessel had 7,000 litres of fuel on board at the time of the grounding.
The 185 meter long, 45653 dwt bulk freighter Abdullah collided with the 178 meter long, 34070 dwt bulk freighter Fortune Cloud at the outer anchorage off Chittagong, Bangladesh. The Fortune Cloud had its hull bottom ruptured allowing water ingress into the engine room. The flooding could not be stopped and the Fortune Cloud sank until the vessel’s hull was resting on the seabed. The Abdullah also suffered hull damage. No reports of injuries or pollution released. A tugboat and naval vessel were dispatched to the scene to aid in the rescue efforts.
