The 25 meter long high-speed passenger ship Vina Express 01 was lost on the Saigon River near Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The hydrofoil had departed from Ho Chi Minh City with 92 people on board bound for Vung Tau when a fire broke out in the engine room. The fire quickly grew out of control and soon the vessel was engulfed in flames. The master of the vessel drove the vessel onto the river bank to let passengers escaped. No reports of injuries as all 85 passengers and 7 crew escaped unharmed. The Vina Express 01 continued to burn to the waters edge before it sank. Authorities have suspended operations for all other hydrofoils in the area.
