A cruise ship ran aground off the coast of the Philippines last week, and reports indicate that the ship remains there.
According to Newsweek.com, the MV Forever Lucky ran aground in the Sulu Sea last week as it traveled in the north of the Philippines. Though no one was harmed in the incident, which apparently occurred as the ship was being towed in shallow waters, the ship continues to threaten those in the surrounding area.
After running aground authorities could not find an obvious way to free the ship, resulting in it remaining stuck.
Authorities now believe that the ship may be susceptible to causing an oil spill.
The report also indicates that the MV Forever Lucky caught the eye of authorities last year in July, when the Philippines’’ National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) stopped the ship in an operation to free nearly 140 people believed to be human trafficking victims.
