(SahilOnline) Mumbai: A Singapore-bound merchant vessel from Jeddah split into two around 840 nautical miles off the coast here today causing oil spill even as all the crew members were rescued, Coast Guard officials said.

‘Mol Comfort’, the 316-m-long vessel was carrying 4,500 containers from Saudi Arabia, they said.

“The vessel hull broke into two off the Mumbai coast and the crew members were rescued from the ship in two life rafts and a life boat,” a Coast Guard official said.
