Ferry capsized and sank in Vanuatu, 2 dead 2 missing
Vanuatu ferry under the name MCY sank early in the morning July 11 en route from Malekula to Port Vila. Vessel capsized before sinking. There were 30 passengers and 11 crew on board, two passengers women died, one crew and one passenger, a child, went missing, the rest were rescued after spending some 6 hours in water waiting for help. Authorities already said vessel was overloaded and not seaworthy with recently patched hole in underwater hull. Not surprisingly, no data found on ferry MCY, seems to be too small for having IMO number.
