On 08/03/2005 'MSC Christina' collided with the Chinese bulker 'Hua Ling', IMO 7392878, in the Yellow Sea near Qingdao, China (In approximate position 34.12N, 122.38E ).
Both vessels were locked together and subsequently towed towards the Chinese coast. 'Hua Ling' was sliced in two & so badly damaged that the stern part sank before salvage could be attempted.
After both parties made claim & counter claim against each other in the Ningbo Maritime Court, all claims were subsequently withdrawn and it was dealt with by a Settlement Agreement between both parties.
