Panic As Ferry Carrying Hundreds In Likoni Get Stuck In The Ocean Due To Technical Problem.

Tragedy has befell some of the Residents of Likoni in Mombasa after a ferry that was carrying hundreds of residents was stuck in the ocean, leaving them with fear, as many had gathered at the beaches while viewing the whole incidence from a distance.

Videos from the scene showed the Big Machine which was moving from one terminal to the other while carrying people, just floating on the waters that was having some little waves and shaking. This prevented it from going forward and instead started going sideways. The locals who were on board were looking on the dry grounds that were far away helplessly, while shouting and speaking to their fellow who were on the safer sides to provide assistance and aid in rescuing them from the predicaments. One man who was boarding another ferry on the same point was shouting while telling the Crew to order some other boats to come and take away some people in from there since it did not appear safe anymore.

The Ferry Management however decided to announce the situation of the Ferry, urging that they had a small technical problem and it was being resolved immediately. He also promised that when the Ocean finally becomes calm, everything will return to normal. Reports have indicated that the ferry departed well, with the required number of passengers but after going some distance into the sea, the captain of the ferry experienced some difficulties in moving teng machine, due to a technical problem in the engine hence forcing it to pause the journey.
