Ethane gas leaked from a cargo ship

Three Indian workers died in an accident on board a ship in the northern Omani city of Sohar, the Sohar Industrial Port Company said on Sunday.

Witnesses said the workers died after inhaling ethane gas that had leaked from the cargo of a ship docked at the port.

“SIPC is working closely with the concerned authorities to investigate the precise cause of the accident,” the port company said in a statement issued to The National.

SIPC said the accident happened on Saturday night but did not provide any further details.

“Ethane gas leaked from the ship’s cargo haul where it was stored and these workers inhaled it and died,” a witness told The National.
