The 69 meter long, 1190 dwt freighter Annemarie went aground on a stone embankment on the German Hunte River after it lost steering due to the rudder failing. The river pushed the vessel until it became perpendicular blocking traffic on the river. The Annemarie was able to be refloated the same day without assistance and proceeded to Neuenhuntorf, Germany. The vessel was examined and was able to continue on to Oldenburg. No one was injured. Damage to the stone embankment was not been released. Officals will be doing an investigation into the incident.
