In the morning of the last day of 2009 a container ship, run by Chinese Shipping Line, hit Woodhouse reef on the Straits of Tiran.
The National Park closed Woodhouse for diving until the ship is off the reef.
The CSCL Hamburg is a 260m long, 33m beam cargo ship licensed under the Cypriot flag. The total load of the ship is 424 40′ containers and 71 20′ containers.
Coming from Aqaba the bow went 36m into the reef.
Unconfirmed sources said that another cargo is on the way to unload the containers.
