Not in Korean incidents? The site of the grounding is south of Yosu. The site of the sinking is NW of Luzon. The CDB treats the 1995-07 grounding and the 1995-12 sinking as two different casualties. But they probably should be considered to be one. Need more info. Ship was a 5 year old Fredericksen VLCC. You would think we would know more.
