Dry cargo ship listed in port, Algeria

General cargo ship PASHA developed starboard side list in the afternoon Jul 9 at Tenes port, Algeria, being docked alongside berth, in the process of offloading cargo of wooden panels for local furniture factory. 11 people, including 2 crew and 9 dockers, were slightly injured. Understood there’s no danger of capsizing, the ship was to be righted by ballast management. As in many cases like this one, when berthed dry cargo ship suddenly develops a heavy list during cargo operation, initial lack of stability, due to faulty ballasting, is the most probable cause. Any weight shift, when stability is about zero, may trigger sudden list or capsizing.
