A stranded container ship on karachi beach was finally refloated after seven weeks at the fifth successful attempt on Tuesday.

The ship, Heng Tong 77, is now heading towards deeper waters.

Seamex, a company that carried out the salvage operation, said the ship was successfully refloated at four times lower expenses than those charged by foreign firms. The cargo ship ran aground and stuck off the Karachi’s Sea View beach on July 21.

Earlier, all four attempts to salvage the ship had failed.
