I have just read in the newspaper that yesterday, four people died and another five were injured when a ferry burst into flames on its way from Tioman Island to Mersing, Malaysia. All 98 passengers jumped overboard to escape the burning ferry. Police say all passengers were locals.
Ferry fires are uncommon in Malaysia, although there have been cases of overloaded ferries capsizing,
Tioman is a popular holiday destination with local and international tourists for its natural beauty and activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving.
My deepest sympathy and regret goes out to the families of the deceased.
