Indian Cargo Ship Develops Heavy List off Colombo

Indian general cargo ship Mutha Pioneer developed a heavy port side list on June 26 while it was sailing off the coast of Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The Dominican-flagged ship tilted to the side after the captain lost control of the vessel, according to the Sri Lanka Navy.

Naval units were dispatched to assist the vessel and its crew. The captain and ten crewmembers who were on board the ship at the time of the incident were evacuated from the vessel and transferred to Colombo harbour.

The 2,357 dwt cargo ship was on its way from Colombo to the Maldives at the time of the incident.

There were no reports of water pollution following the listing.
