Philippines general cargo vessel Ocean Legacy at around 0900 LT Dec 29 sank while offloading containers by own crane on a pier in Ormoc Port, Leyte island, Philippines. Vessel developed a list and rested on the bottom along the pier, with superstructure and part of cargo deck above the waterline, see photo. The reason for losing stability is unknown, most probably vessel was already unstable and capsized when the heavy loaded container was lifted and moved by a vessel’s crane, reducing metacentre height to zero or negative. General cargo vessel Ocean Legacy IMO 8505123, dwt 3910, built 1985, flag Philippines, manager/owner OCEANIC CONTAINER LINES INC, Manila.
