Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF) has warned travelers to be cautious of drifting cargo after a boat on its way from Male’ to D. Atoll sank during the late hours of Saturday night.
The 52-foot “Raasthaa 2” sank 4 nautical miles to the south west of K. Bolifushi Resort at around 1:30 am.
Cargo on board the boat at the time of the incident includes timber – hence the warning for caution.
MNDF reported that there was a Maldivian and two expatriates on board the boat at the time of the incident.
There have been no reports of injuries.
