Local excursion boat sinks - 23 passengers rescued


Update: an accident report has been issued (PDF)

Greenlandic authorities investigating the sinking of the Inuk II, a locally hired excursion boat ferrying passengers from the Ponant vessel, L'Austral, in Ilulissat are not commenting on the accident until they have a complete overview of what caused the incident.

From the accident report (linked above) it turned out a drain hose in the stern had not been correctly refitted during shore repairs.
