The official noted that the vessel hadn't shown any signs of flooding or losing balance, adding that all people on board were wearing life vests.

"It seems that the ferry's front grazed the rock after it changed directions to avoid a fishing boat passing by," said the official.

The incident occurred not far from the area, where a ferry sank back in 2014, killing more than 300 people.
