Dayang Topaz survivors arrive at Miri Port

MIRI (Bernama): The survivors of the MV Dayang Topaz, a vessel which hit an offshore oil platform here in a maritime accident earlier on Tuesday (Oct 27), have safely arrived at Miri Port and given early treatment by the health personnel, says Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA).

The agency said the vessel, which almost sank before the captain and crew managed to take control of it amidst rough sea conditions, is now anchored about four nautical miles from Kuala Sungai Miri, awaiting other vessels to get close to evacuate the remaining crew on board to the shore.

"As for the viral allegation that another crew member had died from the incident, it has yet to be verified and a Petronas helicopter has been arranged to fly medical and police personnel to Baram B oil platform to do the verification,” said the statement.- Bernama
