Coast guard saves crew from Dutch cargo ship in danger of capsizing

Norwegian coast guard officials said on Tuesday that a Dutch cargo ship was in danger of capsizing in rough seas off the coast of the Nordic country.

Twelve crew members on the Eemslift Hendrika raised an alert in the North Sea late on Monday. The coast guard launched a helicopter operation to evacuate the vessel shortly afterwards.

Rescuers airlifted some crew members from the sea, while others were saved from the ship’s deck. All 12 are now safe.
