Tourists rescued after offshore casino collision

A passenger cruise boat with over 40 tourists collided with offshore casino Deltin Jaqk on Saturday, local media reports.

The passenger boat, identified as Om Sai, went off-course due to the currents and hit the casino vessel which was moored nearby. Both vessels luckily did not suffer any damage.

"Because of strong currents, the boat drifted towards the casino vessel instead of the jetty. Thankfully nothing grave happened and no damage occurred," said captain of ports James Braganza over the weekend.
