Serious damage has occurred, including body fractures. CASTA DIVA is about 6 times larger than MING LIAN, it is often impossible to maneuver safely in areas exposed to heavy traffic for ships of this size. Although MING could have prevented collision with LIAN, it could have collided with another ship. It is often impossible to avoid an accident with humanitarian decisions and actions taken. In this region, there are dense traffic lanes formed by ships that go to Shanghai, the Yellow Sea and the Bohai Sea and return from there.
It seems that there is only one rule in the Anti-Collision Regulation of Chinese cargo ships; "If there is a risk of collision between the two ships, this is the problem of the other ship, not mine." Therefore, malicious ships from Shanghai are preparing disasters.
It is among the information obtained from the captain of the ship, where the collision took place at the speed of 13 knots and the Costa Diva was heavily damaged. Costa Diva was anchored in Shanghai after the collision.
Update: CASTA DIVA anchored to Hua Feng, a new destination early in the morning of May 26th.
