The Dutch freighter "Eemslift Hendrika" on April 5th in the Norwegian Arctic Ocean. The ship is in distress. The Norwegian coast guard rescues the crew from board with at least three helicopters - and posted video recordings of the action online. Cargo had previously slipped on board the freighter and the ship was listed. At first the load could be stabilized, the "Eemslift Hendrika" continued on the autopilot, but then it lost its propulsion power. Little by little, the 12-person crew is brought to safety. One person was injured and taken to a hospital. Now the freighter is floating uncontrollably in waves up to 15 meters high - with 350 tons of heavy fuel oil and 50 tons of diesel on board. The ship could hit land in a day and a half. The coast guard now wants to stabilize the freighter so that it does not sink. And she wants to make sure that no oil gets into the sea.
