The ship carrying fuel oil (BBM) reportedly sank in the waters of Tanjung Datuk, Lingga, Riau Islands, Monday (11/1/2021).

The head of the Water and Air Police Unit (Satpolairud) Lingga Police, AKP H Thomas Charles was confirmed by the media crew, confirming the marine accident incident.

Thankfully, there were no fatalities in the incident. 

"Alhamdulillah, everyone survived after about 3 hours of being stranded on an empty island and was rescued by residents of Pulun Village and evacuated to their village, in Mentuda Village on Tuesday (12/1/2021)," said Thomas Charles via WhatsApp message. 

Thomas explained that at that time, the weather conditions were bad and the sea waves were quite high. Thus, the search for ships became constrained.

He continued, with the initial information, the ship departed from Sungai Buluh Village to bring fuel for the Mentuda Village community.

Arriving at Tanjung Datuk, the ship was hit by high waves which caused the ship to sink and the passengers swam to the nearest island.

Thomas reminded of sea transportation users and fishermen to be careful when sailing.

Meanwhile, the Head of BMKG Dabo, Sahat Mauli Pasaribu, predicted the weather on Tuesday (12/1/2021) at 07.00 WIB, thick clouds would have the potential to rain.
