UPDATE (10 JUL): MOL Comfort Fore Section has Sunk

The Indian Coast Guard has departed the scene today of the burned-out derelict of the once elegant containership, MOL Comfort.

The vessel is now outside of India’s Search and Rescue Region, and there apparently is very little, if anything, left on board that can be saved from the fires which have raged since Saturday.

The chief engineer from the tug SCI Urja, which had been towing the MOL Comfort, had to be transferred to the Indian Coast Guard vessel Samudra Prahari after he cut his index finger yesterday.  The Indian Coast Guard vessel, along with the Urja’s Chief Engineer, are both returning to India.
