Sinking Bolivian Ship Refloated

The Egyptian Naval Forces managed to refloat a Bolivian cargo ship from sinking, while it was 4 nautical miles away from Alexandria Port.

The cargo ship, coming from Lebanon, drifted off course as the water leaked into it through a hole in the front of the ship.

Alexandria Port Authority received a distress call from the ship and immediately a rescue unit rushed to the scene and managed to refloat the ship.

The ship was moved to one of the wharves of Alexandria Port to repair it.
