The BBC China was en route to the Durban from Port of Spain, with a cargo of assorted machinery, when it ran aground on 16 October 2004 at Port Grosvenor, on a notoriously rocky part of the Wild Coast, approximately 110 nautical miles south of Durban. The vessel's crew was safely airlifted off the vessel shortly after she ran aground.
