MOL Comfort broke in two in the Indian Ocean on 17/06/2013. All crew were rescued and charter party MOL confirm a salvage company has been contracted in an attempt to save both parts of the vessel. It is currently reported that very few containers have been lost and oil leakage is reported to be very low. At this stage the cause of the break is not known however speculation is rife that it is due to a weight imbalance issue. MSC Napoli suffered a similar fate in the English Channel in 2007.
