  1. Tgl 6 agustus lalu, Carrier LNG Maleo mati mesin dan hanyut di perairan Maluku sekitar laut Belang, Sulawesi Utara di kordinat
    00 19 –
    125-31. Saat hanyut, tanker tsb tersangkut di rakit/rumpon milik nelayan hingga putus dan ikut hanyut. Beruntung, penjaga rumpon berhasil selamatkan diri menggunakan perahu katinting/pakura. Namun rakit tdk terselamatkan (hilang/hanyut terbawa arus). Ironisnya, sejumlah ABK kapal hanya menyaksikan dr atas kapal kejadian itu tanpa upaya memberikan bantuan penyelamatan dan hanya meninggalkan penjaga rakit terombang-ambing di atas perahu katinting yg pasrah kehilangan rakitnya. Mohon tanggungjawabnya.
