A boat travelling from capital Male to Ranveli Island Resort sank near Fihalhohi Island Resort in Kaafu Atoll early Thursday.

According to Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF), there were five people on board the boat. All of them have since been rescued by MNDF Coast Guard.

The boat named “Roadhi” belongs to a resident of Alif Dhaal Atoll Dhangethi Island and was used as a supply boat for Ranveli Island Resort in the same atoll.

There has notably been an increase in the number of marine accidents occurring in the recent bad weather across the Maldives.
