The 85 meter long self-propelled barge Janine broke-in-two after the vessel became stuck on the Hunte near Neuenhuntorf, Germany. The Janine loaded with 1,000 tons of ore suffered rudder failure and drifted until went aground with the bow on one shoreline and the stern on the other. As the tide lowered, the vessel’s midsection hung unsupported in the air until it broke-in-two. No one was hurt in the incident. Authorities have placed booms around the Janine to help contain any leaking fuel.
