A 33,044-ton cargo ship ran aground Wednesday in the Delaware River near the Burlington-Bristol Bridge, between Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
According to the U.S. Coast Guard, a 600-foot bulk carrier
, Agia Irini, was headed southbound when it reportedly lost propulsion and ran aground around 2 p.m.
Officials said a 65-foot Coast Guard cutter responded and the ship was refloated. They said the ship was taken to the Mantua Creek Anchorage Port Facility in Paulsboro, Gloucester County where it will anchor for the investigation.
The ship will be on administrative hold, either anchored or docked, while the incident is investigated. No injuries or pollution were reported after the incident.
Agia Irini is heading from Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania to Philadelphia. The bulk carrier is currently sailing under the Liberian flag.
