The 120 meter long, 6,449 dwt livestock carrier Haidar capsized while berthed at Barcarena, Para, Brazil. The Haidar was loaded with some 5,000 cattle and was preparing to depart for Venezuela when it lost stability when it suffered water ingress. The livestock carrier capsized and eventually sank onto its port side. No reports of injuries, but thousands of cattle were trapped on board and perished. A small number of cattle were fortunately enough to escape and were able to rush onto the side of the vessel. The local port authority has launched an investigation into the incident.
