Sinaran Andaman Vessel Sinks Off Thailand, Crew Safe

A Cambodian-flagged containership, Sinaran Andaman, sunk in the vicinity of Phuket, Thailand on July 08.

According to media reports, all 10 crew members were rescued by the Royal Thai Navy.

The vessel sank due to engine failure and inability to anchor. It also got caught in the monsoon waves which stranded the vessel on rocks of Koh Hae Island where it sunk.

This is the third accident in the waters of Phuket caused by monsoon. Earlier a fishing vessel and a barge sank in the same area.

The Authorities have prohibited sailing of smaller vessels in the area due to monsoon.
