An Indonesian-flagged ferry, SRI KANDI 99, ran aground on a rock bund at the southern tip of Pulau Tekong on Monday (9 July) night, according to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

"At 11.42pm on 9 July 2018, the MPA received a report that an Indonesian-flagged ferry, SRI KANDI 99, ran aground on a rock bund at the southern tip of Pulau Tekong, within Singapore port waters," says a press release.
The ferry was making a return trip from Panama-registered passenger vessel "AEGEAN PARADISE", anchored south of Pengerang, Johor, to Pasir Gudang, Johor when she ran aground.
She was carrying 34 passengers (33 Malaysians and 1 Vietnamese) and 11 Indonesian crew. All 45 people onboard were safe and accounted for.
The passengers were subsequently transferred to another ferry, CAMARA SAMUDRA, and disembarked at Tanjong Pengelih, Johor at 5.15am. The crew are assisting with the investigations.
There are no reports of injury or oil pollution. The owner is making arrangements to re-float the ferry. MPA is investigating the incident.
