Hong Kong’s iconic giant floating restaurant capsizes in South China Sea
According to foreign media reports, Hong Kong’s famous jumbo floating restaurant, built on a ship, sank in the South China Sea less than a week after being removed from the port of Aberdeen.
According to the details, the floating restaurant encountered undesirable conditions on Saturday when it was passing through the island of Shisha in the South China Sea when the water started entering the ship and disappeared in the sea.
The company said the rescue operation was extremely difficult due to the depth of the sea, while no crew member was injured in the sinking of the floating restaurant.
According to media reports, the restaurant, which had been closed for two years due to financial difficulties, was being relocated from the city.
