Livestock carrier capsizes leaving cattle stranded
A livestock carrier capsized and sank while berthed at Porto Vila do Conde in Barcarena, Brazil, leaving cattle stranded on top of the overturned hull.
Some 5,000 animals were onboard the Lebanon-flagged Haidar (6,419 dwt, built 1994; pictured) at the time of the sinking, which happened within two hours of the vessel capsizing, local reports say.
The vessel reportedly developed a list while moored at the berth, but the crew were evacuated before the ship turned over.
