Passengers rescued from ferry

Home/Cruise News/Passengers rescued from ferry

All 153 passengers were safely evacuated from a Norwegian Coastal Voyages ship which ran aground just 25 feet from its berth in Trondheim yesterday.
Richard With, one of the Hurtigruten ships which runs a weekly ferry service between Bergen and Kirkenes, was caught by a gust of wind as it was docking.
The ship’s propellor hit rocks and the vessel started taking water.
Rescue services laid ladders from the shore to the ship and the passengers and crew were able to crawl to safety. No-one was injured.
Dramatic pictures of the incident were taken by local amateur photographer Arve Johnsen. Many thanks to him for permission to provide this link.
