A bus ferrying passengers from Tanzania to Mombasa Island plunged into the sea Thursday morning after its brakes failed.

The 4.00 am incident affected transport along the busy Likoni channel on the mainland side. The SMART Company bus blocked part of the ramp, allowing for only one ferry to dock.

No one was injured in the incident.

Kenya Navy military officials were at the scene as Kenya Ferry Services employees, led by their acting Managing Director Khamis Gowa, tried to tow it away from the sea.
