SINGAPORE: A 30—year—old male crew member of a harbour craft died after the vessel collided with a container ship at about noon on Wednesday.
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said the collision occurred in the Sinki Fairway, about 7 kilometres southwest of the Pasir Panjang Terminal.
The container ship is an Antigua and Barbuda—registered vessel.
MPA said two people were on board the harbour craft which sank after the collision. The second person, a 60—year—old man, was sent to a hospital for treatment.
MPA has issued navigational broadcasts to vessels in the vicinity to keep clear of the area, but added that port operations are unaffected.
MPA is investigating the incident and will review safety procedures in the port.
This is the second collision in five days. On March 9, a coaster craft sank after it collided with a passenger ferry in the West Keppel Fairway, about 3.5 kilometres from the Pasir Panjang Ferry Terminal.
One crew member of the Indonesian—registered boat was reported missing.
A search and rescue operation was activated, but the man has not been found.
