Update on Ship Collision in Malaysia

Manx Ship Escapes Relatively Unscathed.

The Liberian tanker that collided with a Manx vessel earlier in the week is now ready for investigators to come onboard and determine the cause of the accident.


The Manx ship escaped relatively unscathed in comparison to the Liberian registered Formosa-product Brick, which was devastated by fire, and currently still has nine crew members missing.


It’s believed that the unaccounted for crew are still on the vessel, inspectors have only been able to get on board today after the fire was finally extinguished yesterday.


The local ship the Ostende Max escaped with minor damage, two of the crew had to be taken to hospital to be treated for superficial burns.
