A container ship about 400 metres long ran aground off the island of Wangerooge on Thursday night. According to the Control Command for Maritime Emergencies, the ship was the "Mumbai Maersk", which sails under the Danish flag and was on its way from Rotterdam to Bremerhaven. Several tugs and multi-purpose vessels were sent to the shipwrecked vessel during the night. In addition, a team of specially trained crew members had been brought on board.

However, a first attempt to bring the container ship back into deeper waters failed, a speaker of the Control Command for Maritime Emergencies announced. Now the next steps are being coordinated with the shipping company. Among other things, more powerful tugs are to be sent to the ship.
