Setia Jaya, 11,000dwt chemical tanker was found drifting some 320 miles off the South East coast of Sri Lanka. The British Pride was the only passing ship in the area which stopped to offer assistance. The Setia Jaya had suffered an engine room explosion and fire which gutted the accommodation area, and destroyed the bridge and communications equipment. The vessel had been adrift for six days. Very regrettably, six members of the crew were killed in the explosion. In total fifteen survivors were rescued and brought to safety. Two of these persons were treated for their injuries on board the British Pride. The survivors have been made comfortable, and will be repatriated in Bali in about four days time.
