The 27 meter long tug Aries went aground on the Danube River near Luberegg, Austria. The Aries was pushing two tanker barges holding 750 tons of diesel fuel when the tug sprang a leak. The tug disconnected from the barges and headed towards a nearby sandbar to avoid sinking. The vessel suffered severe water ingress with the engine room completed flooded causing a total power outage. The local fire rescue were requested which brought out pumps and placed oil booms around the tug. Divers were sent to patch the leak while the pumps were able to dewater the vessel. No reports of injuries or damage. Pollution released was contained and was not released into the river.
