The bulk carrier MV Benita, which ran aground at Mauritius on June 17 after a brawl broke out in the engine room, was being dragged from Mauritius to Alang in India to be scrapped. However, the ship sunk 93,5 nautical miles from Mauritius in 4,400 meter water depth.

There was no one aboard the ship when it happened, and all crew members from the tug Ionian Sea FOS from the salvage company Five Oceans Salvage are safe. There has not been observed any pollution around the ship, but the tug remains at the scene to see if any pollution should occur.

MV Benita was pulled clear of the ground on July 23 after being stranded for more than a month.
