THE 660-TEU feedermax containership Vietsun Integrity with 290 containers onboard has capsized on the Long Tau river near Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Its 17-crew members made it safely to the shore.

The incident happened when the 2003-built vessel operated by Vietnamese company Vietsun was sailing downstream from Ho Chi Minh to Vung Tau. The ship capsized and sank two hours after the crew discovered the ship was listing, reported Singapore's Splash 247.



The incident caused a large number of containers to fall from the ship and float on the river.



The Ho Chi Minh City Port Authority restricted maritime traffic near the ship wreckage site and sent in a team to conduct the salvage operations.
