A ship sank in a collision between two cargo ships in northern Germany. One deceased person was recovered from the water, and two people were rescued. Divers are being deployed to search for the four missing people.
The ships Policy and Verity collided last night around 5 a.m. about 22 kilometers southwest of the German island of Helgoland. The truth will sink in.
There were seven people on board that ship. One person was found dead, and two drowned people were rescued. Four other passengers are missing. Divers are also used to search for them. According to the German rescue team, the four missing passengers are likely still alive on the ship.
The other ship remained afloat. German authorities said that the 22 people on board that ship received medical care and are in good health.
Visibility was limited due to fog
A cruise ship that happened to be nearby came to help. People on board can get medical help there. In addition, two rescue ships and a number of other boats were deployed in the search operation. The search is also being conducted from the air, including helicopters.
Due to fog, visibility was limited in the North Sea last night. The wave height was 3 meters and there were strong winds (wind force 6).
The approximately 100-metre-long Verity ship was on its way from Bremen to Immingham, England. The ship sailed under the British flag. The ship “Ferretti” was carrying steel and carrying 1,300 cubic meters of diesel.
The Police ship, which is about 200 meters long, was on its way from Hamburg to La Coruña in Spain. That ship flies the Bahamas flag.
