45 containers fell from container ship, cargo looted, Brazil
Update Aug 12: At least 11 locals were arrested by the police for looting cargo from containers, which fell overboard from container ship LOG IN PANTANAL. Some cargoes from containers float around, like those backpacks on photos, some cargoes like air-cons and medical supplies are looted from floating containers. Waters near accident site are littered with floating cargo, containers and mosquito fleet of coastal residents, picking up everything they can. Containers fell overboard when the vessel was some 2 nm off the coast, cause yet unknown. There was a swell some 3 meters high, but it could hardly cause such a major loss, providing everything was in good order and prepared for sea.
