Hong Kong: The iconic floating restaurant of Hong Kong, which was popular among tourists over the years, has sunk, media reports said on Tuesday.
The restaurant sank just days after it was towed away from the harbour where it operated for nearly 50 years.
The Jumbo restaurant capsized in the South China Sea while on its way to an undisclosed location, its parent company said as quoted by BBC.
Aberdeen Restaurant Enterprises said it was "very saddened by the incident" but that no crew members were injured, reported the British media.
The restaurant had shut down operations on March 2020 amid COVID-19 spike.
