Sri Kandi 99
On July 9, the 32 meter long, 154 gt passenger ferry Sri Kandi 99 ran aground at the southern end of Pulau Tekong Island, Singapore. The ferry was making a return trip from the anchored cruise ship Aegean Paradise with 45 passengers and crew bound for Pengerang, Johor. The ferry struck the rocks off the Pulau Tekong at low tide damaging the hull and leaving the Sri Kandi 99 with a severe list. Forty of the passengers and crew were able to make it shore without issue. Authorities dispatched patrol vessels to the scene and freed the remaining 5 persons off the ferry. Reports state 2 persons suffered minor injuries. All the passengers were later transferred to the ferry Camara Samudra.
Reports stated the Sri Kandi 99 later capsized onto its starboard hull and partially sank. Owners have made arrangements to refloat the ferry. Singapore authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.
