VIETSUN INTEGRITY disaster story
Oct 19: Container ship VIETSUN INTEGRITY capsized and sank between buoys 28/30 on Long Tau river, while sailing downstream from Ho Chi Munh to Vung Tau, Vietnam, at 2330 LT (UTC +7) Oct 18. Hull is partially above water, a number of containers are floating around, 17 crew made to the shore, all safe, there were 290 containers on board.
Wonder if she might have hit some unexploded ordinance left over from the war. My old stomping grounds out of Nha Be. The SS Eastern Mariner was sunk by a VC mine right by the base. Sad about the divers.
