When tugboats towed Jumbo Floating Restaurant away from Hong Kong last week, the giant vessel’s owner sent the public its "best wishes for a brighter future.”

That future now lies at the bottom of the South China Sea.

The 260-foot, three-story eatery capsized and sank as it was being towed through deep water over the weekend, its owner, Aberdeen Restaurant Enterprises, said Monday. No one was injured, it said.
