How a ship trapped?
The incident occurred when a gust of sand arose due to strong winds on the banks of the 120-mile-long canal. This waterway is narrow. The crew lost control of the ship due to strong winds and reached the sandy shore. Due to being about 400 meters long and weighing 2 thousand metric tons, the process of evacuating the ship has become more difficult.
