Sink­ing boat a false alarm

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

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
