“The Samudra Indah sank at the site but all nine crew on board were rescued by a passing vessel Sunlight Poseidon. The Explorer did not sustain any damage. No injuries or oil pollution were reported,” he said.
“MPA is investigating the incident. To ensure navigational safety, MPA has installed a buoy to mark the site and has initiated broadcasts to alert passing vessels.
“MPA is also working with the owner of Samudra Indah to facilitate the removal of the sunken craft. Vessel traffic in the area remains unaffected.”
