A roughly $2 million superyacht docked in Thailand caught fire and sunk to the bottom of the ocean after both the ship’s crew and firefighters were unable to put out the blaze.
According to the Phuket News, the crew was on board the “Lady D” when the fire started. They attempted to put the fire out, but it grew too quickly and forced the crew to jump off the ship to save their lives.
Firefighters at Ao Po Grand Marina then arrived and attempted to put out the fire. They were able to briefly get the fire under control before it was reignited.
Due to the strength of the fire, the burning ship was declared a total loss and was dragged out to sea to protect the people and other boats docked at the marina.
The captain of the “Lady D” watched from the dock as the ship, which is owned by a Canadian businessman, was consumed by the flames and started to sink into the ocean.
Firefighters say no one was injured.
