A tanker loaded with almost 1,300 tons of diesel got stuck in the Rhine near St. Goar on Sunday evening.

The reason is a driving error, as the water police announced.

The fairway on the left bank of the Rhine was closed.

The ship was said to have drifted onto the so-called Geisenrücke, a rock in the Rhine river near the famous Loreley.

There was no leak, and according to the police, no one was injured.

According to initial findings, the crew had underestimated the very narrow and current-intensive route.

The ship could only be salvaged in daylight, said a spokesman.

The five-person crew had to spend the night on board.
