Indonesia ferry hits trouble on way to Singapore, 97 rescued - Reuters

SINGAPORE Almost 100 people were rescued when a ferry sailing toward Singapore from the Indonesian island of Batam hit a floating object and reportedly started to sink, authorities in the city-state said. Ferry operator Batamfast called out two other ferries that rescued all 90 passengers and seven crew and took them back to the Nongsapura ferry terminal in Batam, Singapore's Maritime and Port Authority said in an emailed statement. The authority said early on Monday it had received a report of the incident on the 'Sea Prince' at 9:45 p.m. on Sunday (1345 GMT). A passenger, Chella Ho, said the ferry started sinking slowly in deep water and passengers were loaded into two inflatable boats but those boats also sank because they were overloaded, TV news network Channel News Asia reported.
