A barge sunk of the coast of Phuket on Tuesday afternoon, fortunately there appears to have been no casualties following the incident.
The Marine Office was informed that the barge called “Tanyongpuyu” had sunk, roughly a mile from land. It was carrying a large crane at the time.
Stories suggest that the vessel hit rocks, took on water, before sinking to the depths of the ocean, although it appears to have taken a few hours to completely submerge.
