Five missing after dredger and tanker collide in the Singapore Strait

5 men missing after early morning maritime collision

Four Chinese nationals and a Malaysian went missing after a Dominican-registered sand dredger collided with an Indonesian-registered tanker in Singaporean waters early Wednesday morning.

MPA said the dredger was transiting the westbound lane while the tanker was departing Singapore to join the eastbound lane of the Traffic Separation Scheme in the Singapore Strait when the incident occurred.

The dredger capsized and was partially submerged, while the tanker was damaged on one side, the Singapore Maritime Port Authority said in a statement.

None of the crew members of the Indonesian tanker sustained any injuries in the collision. Seven of the Chinese nationals have been rescued and are undergoing treatment at a hospital.
