A tanker that got stuck in the Rhine was recovered near Oberwesel on Monday morning.
The ship, loaded with almost 1,300 tons of diesel, got stuck on Sunday evening.
The reason for this was that it had to stop because of an oncoming ship, as Peter Knopp from the St. Goar water police announced on Monday.
As a result, the rudder power was lost and the current drove the ship onto a rocky middle distance, where it got stuck.
St. Goar - There was no leak as a result.
The ship could only be salvaged in daylight on Monday.
The five-person crew had to spend the night on board.
Two tugs were finally able to recover the tanker on Monday morning without damage to the ship and without injuries.
The tanker has been checked and is now back on its original route to Switzerland, as Knopp announced.
