NASCO Diamond

4 supervivientes, un cuerpo recuperado y 20 desaparecidos es el balance de la perdida del Nasco Diamond en el Pacífico. El bulkcarrier iba cargado con 55000 toneladas de mineral de niquel desde Indonesia a China, teniendo en cuenta que el barco era nuevo, y que según los supervivientes hacía buen tiempo, parece que la causa ha podido ser la fluidificación de la carga.
