Fourteen Passengers of Sunken Ratu Ayu Boat Survive
TEMPO Interactive, Maluku:Some 13 people are still missing, while 14 others survived when the KM Ratu Ayu boat sank in waters off Ambon at around 1 a.m. on Sunday.
The wooden boat, which sailed off from the Slamet Riyadi Port in Ambon was carrying 27 passengers and 11 crew members. The boat was heading to Waitawa, South Buru Regency, in Maluku at around 10 p.m. on Saturday.
KM Ratu Ayu arrived at Tapi Cape between Alang and Hatu Village in Ambon at around midnight and was hit by a large wave. Water flooded the deck when passengers were asleep.
To rebalance the boat the crew threw some cargo into the sea, including rice and pipes for the clean water project initiated by the Public Works Board on Buru Island. The effort was unsuccessful as the boat sank an hour later.
