Local officials said on Tuesday that the stormy weather off the coast of Norway on Monday evacuated the crew of a Dutch cargo ship that was still sailing and was in danger of sinking.
The video released by the Norwegian Rescue Coordination Center showed that some of the 12 crew members jumped into the sea and were rescued by helicopters, while others were rescued directly from the deck.
A Norwegian official said that everyone is safe, but the ship is currently in the North Sea about 130 kilometers away and is in danger of sinking.
Hans Pat Mortensen of the Norwegian Coastal Administration said: “The ship’s main engine failed at night.”
Mortensen said: “There is a risk of tipping and sinking,” adding that this may cause diesel and fuel oil to overflow from the tank.
According to Starclass Yacht Transport in Monaco, Eemslift Hendrika was built in 2015 and registered in the Netherlands as a ship used to transport yachts and small vessels on deck.
