MPA Singapore published update on semi-submersible barge sinking:
Singapore-registered barge POSH MOGAMI sank 2 nautical miles northeast of Sekupang, Batam, on Friday (18 July) night. There were nine persons on board the barge when the incident happened. It was reported that the semi-submersible barge was carrying out submerging trials at the time of the incident. Indonesian authorities have since rescued 6 persons (2 Singaporeans, 1 Malaysian, 1 Dutch, 1 Filipino, 1 Indonesian) and recovered 3 bodies (1 Singaporean, 1 Chinese, 1 Myanmar national).
Remarks:
Mr. Kees De Ru sent tug details, which is, most probably, tug Ocean Unison.
Sekupang Batam means accident took place in Singapore Strait, not in Riau Islands area.
