Road Accident

Vehicle With 2 Occupants Plunges Into Indian Ocean at The Likoni Ferry Channel [VIDEO]

On Friday night, November 26, there was a panic at the Likoni Ferry Crossing Channel when two passengers nearly missed death after a trailer crashed into the Indian Ocean.

According to reports, while attempting to board a ferry to cross the ocean, the trailer, which was filled with a 40-foot container, lost control and went into the water.

According to Likoni Sub County Police Commander Joseph Karanja, there were two inmates at the time of the occurrence.

The driver and the passenger both jumped into the water and were unharmed.

The trailer had not yet been removed from the location as of Saturday, November 27.

Such incidents are widespread, as evidenced by a January incident in which a bus crashed into the Indian Ocean while delivering visitors in Mombasa's Coastal Town.

The motorist was attempting to board the ship when the brakes failed.

Fortunately, all visitors had disembarked from the bus, allowing it to board the Likoni Crossing Chanel ferry.

Kenya Ferry Services informs both personnel and the general public about safety protocols on a regular basis in order to reduce injuries and deaths on the ferry.

KFS encourages passengers not to rush and to arrive at the port at least five minutes prior to departure.

Furthermore, all passengers should stay behind any yellow and black striped zones on the wharf.

Bicycles, skateboards, and rollerblades are not permitted on the wharf.

Stay in well-lit places in sight of arriving vessels and near the Help Point, PA speakers, and CCTV cameras if crossing the channel at night, according to an excerpt from the KFS website.
