KOLKATA, INDIA – Two ships collided on a river downstream from Kolkata, India, midday today at around noon local time.

One of the vessels, Bangladeshi coastal lighter MAMAMOYEE MAA, loaded with ash, sank after the collision.

All on board were rescued, with one suffering injures. The other ship was a Kolkata Port Trust ship.

A spectacular video of MAMAMOYEE MAA sinking was posted in YouTube – the ship ran onto the bank to avoid sinking, but the strong currents took her off, and she quickly sank.
