On Sunday afternoon, a fire broke out aboard the 🇮🇳Aircraft Carrier INS Viraat⚓. While the fire was brought under control, 4⃣ sailors were injured😷 due to inhaling superheated smoke💨 from the fire🔥. Unfortunately, Chief Engineering Mechanic🔧 Ashu Singh, one of the men who were injured suffered a cardiac arrest💔 and died. He was shifted to the naval hospital🏥 in Goa. The 3⃣ others sailors are out of danger & under treatment. It’s believed that the incident began after some insulating material in the boiler⚗ room caught fire due to a steam💨 leakage. The INS Virat has sailed for nearly 60 years👏 and is on her last operational deployment. She will be decommissioned💐 later this year. The vessel is now en route to Mumbai🌃.
