(16 September 2021, Hong Kong) HKKF Sea Spirit sailing from Peng Chau to Central lost its power when reaching Central Pier 6 and seven passengers were slightly injured.
The 08:20 scheduled ferry from Peng Chau reached the Central Pier 6 around 08:51 and the vessel suddenly experienced a loss of power and the hull knocked on the pier resulted in a minor damage on the port side.
Two male passengers and five female passengers are slightly injured and were sent to Queen Mary Hospital for treatment, whereas other passengers left the ferry on their own.
HKKF will offer appropriate assistance to the injured passengers whenever needed.
Today, Peng Chau ferry service runs as scheduled.
