By Accidents

A passenger vessel has been brought safely to anchor after she ran aground on the west cost of Scotland.
The Serenissima, became lodged on sand and gravel in Oban Bay at around 6:30 p.m. on 20th of May, Monday.
There were 112 people onboard the passenger ship when it ran aground. None of the 61 travelers or 51 crew members were injured during the accident.
The grounded passenger ship Serenissima is an 87-metre vessel that ran aground at the bow at a spot known as the Corran Ledge as it made its way from Ireland to the port of Oban.
The MCA reported there weren't any reports of injuries, and no reports of pollution or of water entering the passenger ship Serenissima.
Strong winds hampered first attempts by the crew members and the Oban RNLI lifeboat team to help the ship, but it was eventually re-floated at about 1:10 a.m.
The grounded passenger ship Serenissima is now anchored in Oban Bay and is going to undergo a dive inspection later on Tuesday.
