The cargo ship was carrying the flag of Comoros, with reports mentioning that one Indian seaman sustained injuries in the foot.
Providing more information on the capsized, Mehdi Haghshenas, deputy chief of Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization, said that the ship was not being loaded with the proper way.
What is more, he added that there was poor coordination between the ship’s first officer and the crane operator, as they lifted the containers on board.
The ship consisted of 14 crew members, all of whom are from India.
For now there are no further details for the incident, neither an estimate of damages.
