The 41 meter long, 151 dwt passenger cargo vessel Binh Thuan 16 ran aground off Phan Thiet, Vietnam. The Binh Thuan 16 was carrying 150 passengers and cargo when it suffered a power blackout and drifted onto a reef off the Phu Quy coast. No reports of injuries or pollution released. Nearby authorities safely brought the passengers ashore. Reports state some cargo was discharged, but more will be unloaded if the Binh Thuan 16 can not be refloated. Authorities state the cause of the incident was due to sedimentation along the estuary.
