On September 15, the 50 meter long fishing vessel Mana ran arground on Musgrave Island, Queensland, Australia. Initial attempts to refloat the vessel by the crew had failed and the crew were forced to stay on board until the following day by a passing boat. The two crew were uninjured and safely taken to Bundaberg.
The Mana rests on a sandbank and is high and dry during low tide. Authorities report no damage and no pollution has been released, but the fishing vessel had some 8 tons of fuel on board at the time of the grounding. Authorities have a vessel monitoring the situation and are working on a salvage plan.
