Sinking boat a false alarm
HONG KONG: A large barge that appeared to be sinking Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour had in fact been deliberately submerged for engineering purposes.
Authorities and a fire boat responded to an emergency call – only to find the barge had been purposefully submerged.
The “sinking” barge was clearly visible from the thousands of skyscraper offices that encircle the harbour. – Sapa-AP
