Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) has assisted a boat travelling to Male’ from HA. Ihavandhoo, after its engine malfunctioned.
MNDF said the boat stalled near B. Kamadhoo and had 100 passengers onboard.
MNDF’s Northern Area coastguard took the boat to Kamadhoo around 3:30 a.m. with the help of another boat provided by the owner of the boat in distress.
VNews understands the boat is currently travelling to Male’ after having its engine repaired at Kamadhoo.
However the boat is travelling at a slower speed as the heat of the engine continues to fluctuate, MNDF said.
