This has not been the first time that it has been a part of the controversy. Back in 2008, there was a fire breakout from the air-conditioning as well as a refrigeration system. It happened when it was continuing its tour throughout the Pacific. As many as 37 sailors were harmed and a total of 12 hours were spent to bring the matters in control.
Moreover, the ship has almost 50+ years of service life. As it is undergoing a mid-career refit, the ship was expected to be back into service by December 2022. So, in the midst of all this, such incidents have risked the lives of many. Until all the news is out regarding the cause of death, we need to keep patience.
