Dubai ports operator DP World has confirmed that 10 people were injured in an accident involving a container vessel at the Jebel Ali port last week.

The incident occurred when the vessel collided with the harbour wall at the port’s Terminal 1 on Thursday, May 4.

Nine people sustained minor injuries and were treated at the DP World Medical Clinic at the terminal, DP World said in a statement on Monday. One person, who suffered a fractured arm and leg, was taken to hospital and is currently in a stable condition, it added.

“While berthing, a CMA CGM container vessel collided with the harbour wall striking the leg of a quay crane causing it to fall. A second crane was also shifted off its rails during the incident but remained upright and stable,” DP World said.
