Container ship sinking after collision - pictures

Two vessels collided Saturday morning off the Mumbai coast in western India. The Panamanian-flagged JNPT MSC Chitra vessel collided with a vessel from St. Kitts and Nevis. Thirty-three crew members were evacuated without incident or injuries. However, because the Panamanian vessel became grounded, the incident caused an oil spill.

There are more than 150 containers on the vessel and it was listing at more than 45 degrees. Fuel was also leaking from the ship. The oil spill could be seen for miles, officials said.
