Shipwreck Lifeboat from 2011 Accident Washes up in Australia

During early February a lifeboat has washed ashore in Australia from a ship that ran aground in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean almost two years ago. The lifeboat from the bulk carrier Oliva floated about 8,000 kilometres from Nightingale Island to a beach at the Coorong wetlands near the mouth of the Murray in South Australia. The ship’s crew of more than 20 was rescued after the maritime accident in March 2011, which caused a big oil spill.
