Adria Sailboat Sinks

The Adria ship was in overhaul in 2015. Afterwards, that is, after the tourist season, it returned to berth. Since its owner abandoned it in 2016, the shipyard workers kept it afloat considering that it is made of timber, very old and in poor condition. The ship has ruptures in its wooden hull, an automatic pump with a float and an electric pump which is operational. This morning, the amount of water that penetrated the hull was too large to be pumped out and the ship sank in 20 minutes.
A containment boom was immediately placed in order to prevent even the slightest pollution, even though the ship did not carry oil or other potential polluters. The divers will inspect the ship and, according to their findings, other necessary actions will be undertaken in cooperation with the bankruptcy administrator.
