A squadron of Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF)’s Male’ area coastguard has begun work to re-float a vessel than ran aground a patch of reef early Friday.
MNDF officials revealed that a team of divers from the coastguard had begun work to re-float the fishing vessel, “Magulas”, that had reportedly run aground a reef eastward of Fushi Dhiggaru Falhu.
MNDF had on Friday cautioned seafarers to be cautious of floating supplies and other material in the area.
RaajjeMV understands that a five-member crew, a Maldivian and four expatriates, had been on board the 80-foot vessel at the time.
MNDF revealed that while work to re-float the vessel began on Friday, it still continues.
