Five crew members of a Dominican dredger are reported missing after the vessel collided with an Indonesian tanker in Singapore waters in the early hours of Wednesday (13 September). The dredger was transiting in a westbound shipping lane as it was entering Singapore, while the tanker was joining an eastbound lane to depart when they collided at 12:40 a.m., the authority said. "We will continue with our search and rescue efforts to find the remaining three missing crew members", said Mr. Andrew Tan, Chief Executive of MPA.

The tanker crew of 26 sailors, who marched under the flag of Indonesia, was not injured.

Out of the seven admitted in the hospital, five have since been discharged, a hospital spokesperson confirmed, adding that one remained admitted while the other was under observation.

Search and rescue operations underway to locate the missing crew from dredger which collided with a tanker in Singapore waters. The tanker was reportedly damaged on her starboard bow, but was stable and is now anchored at the Eastern Anchorage.

In addition to this, MPA has deployed three patrol craft to assist in the SAR operation and the Republic of Singapore Navy, SCDF and PCG have also deployed a total of seven vessels on scene to support the search and rescue operation. Prior to the collision, Singapore's Vessel Traffic Information System (VTIS) had provided timely navigational information and warnings to both vessels to take preventive actions to avoid a collision. The maritime authority has told ships to look out for the missing crew and to navigate with caution near the collision site. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.

The accident around the busy Singapore Strait occurred just weeks after a deadly collision involving a United States warship in the same area.

The accident comes less than a month after a U.S. destroyer and an oil tanker collided near Singapore, leaving 10 USA crewmen dead.
