The 146 meter long, 15332 dwt bulk carrier Sundaisy E ran aground on the St. Lawrence River off Batiscan, Quebec. The Sundaisy E was en route from Turkey to Hamilton, Ontario with a cargo of cement when it suffered a generator failure. The loss of the generator cut the engine and the bulk carrier went adrift until it grounded off Batiscan. The vessel remained aground for several hours until the crew was able to restart the engine. Under its own power, the Sundaisy E refloated itself. Two tugs escorted the Sundaisy E to Trois-Rivières where the bulk carrier could be inspected and repaired. Canadian authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.
