Danica Joy 2
The 60 meter long, 249 dwt ro-ro passenger ferry Danica Joy 2 capsized and sank at its berth in Zamboanga, Philippines. The ferry had arrived from Sandakan with 799 passengers and cargo including food items and dry goods. All the 799 passengers disembarked and the crew began offloading cargo along the port side of the vessel. Unfortunately, the crew had not ballast the vessel during the unloading process. The Danica Joy 2 lost stability and rolled over onto her starboard side partially sinking. No reports of injuries to the crew on board at the time of the incident. Authorities placed booms around the vessel to contain any pollution released.
