The 20 meter long tug Phoenix sank at the Volkerak Lock in Willemstad, Netherlands. The Phoenix had collided with the tanker-barge Imke Deymann resulting in hull damage and water ingress on the Phoenix. The tug partially sank leaving only part of its wheelhouse above water. All five crew on the Phoenix were able to escape in time. No reports of injuries. The sunken tug blocked traffic at the lock and authorities placed booms around the vessel to prevent possible pollution released. The following day a crane was brought to the scene to raise the Phoenix.
The 157 meter long, 12830 dwt ro-ro cargo vessel Super Shuttle Roro 10 ran aground off Ouano wharf, Mandaue City, Cebu, Philippines. The Super Shuttle Roro 10 had departed from the wharf heading for Cagayan de Oro City when it became stuck in shallow water at low tide. The cargo vessel was later released on the rising tide and towed back to Ouano to be inspected for damage. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
