A speedboat has capsized near the reef of R. Ungoofaaru, injuring 3 individuals.
According to Ungoofaaru Council member Hussain Asif, the injured were treated at the Ungoofaaru Regional Hospital and no major casualties were reported.
The speedboat capsized due to an engine malfunction after which waves paired with strong winds led it to be overturned.
The speedboat belongs to the owner of the restaurant West Beach Hassan Moosa. It was headed to the neighboring resort, Joali Maldives.
During the time of the incident, the people in the speedboat were a Maldivian captain, three foreign helpers and three Turkish tourists.
