14 Crew Rescued from Listing Cargo Ship in Greek Waters

14 Crew Rescued from Listing Cargo Ship in Greek Waters
The Hellenic Coast Guard carried out a dramatic rescue operation on Wednesday, December 4, evacuating fourteen crew members of the Liberian-flagged general cargo vessel New Leo.

The ship, loaded with steel, got into trouble while battling bad weather in the area between the Greek islands of Lesbos and Skyros in the Aegean Sea, the coast guard said.

Namely, the vessel’s cargo started to shift following a mechanical failure causing the cargo ship to list 30 degrees starboard, making it practically impossible to navigate through the heavy swells.

The captain of the stricken vessel had to call in for assistance and abandon ship.

An extensive rescue operation followed suit, with two navy ships and two Air Force Super Puma helicopters dispatched to the scene.

As informed, the crew was transferred to Skyros to a medical facility as some of the sailors needed medical treatment.

New Leo remains in the same position and there have been no reports of contamination from the vessel.
