Ships Collide in Germany

Wednesday, December 07, 2005
Two ships collided in a German river, sinking one of the vessels and throwing seven of its sailors into the water, according to an AP report. A third ship later ran into the wreckage. Tugboats pulled the sailors from the estuary of the Elbe River after a freighter carrying fertilizer collided with a container ship north of the port city of Hamburg. The freighter capsized and quickly sank. A tanker, which was also carrying fertilizer, plowed into the wreck in the dark about an hour later. The container ship was able to continue its journey, while the tanker was pulled free and brought into a nearby harbor. Source: AP
