Story here. Would they actually let it run aground? Wouldn’t they at least want to sink it before that happens?

A GHOST ship laden with disease-ridden, cannibal rats is heading towards the UK, experts say.

www.news.com.au 24 January 2014

The 300 foot (91-metre) Lyubov Orlova has been adrift in the North Atlantic for a year after being cut loose off Canada, the Sun reports.

The location of the 40-year-old Soviet-built cruise ship is unknown but experts say that it is still afloat because four liferaft transmitters have not been activated, as they would have if the ship had sunk.

Wiki cites a source that says the emergency beacon has been activated and it is thought to be sunk.
