The 63 meter long self-propelled barge Vincent sank on the Spaarne River while at Haarlem, Netherlands. The Vincent, loaded with a full cargo of sand, suffered a large crack in the hull allowing water ingress. The crew contacted the local firefighters who attempted to dewater the vessel with pumps. However, the water ingress was too great and the Vincent sank. Divers were able to make temporary repairs and the vessel was raised the next day. The cargo of sand was transferred to another vessel to allow the Vincent to be taken to a shipyard. The cause of the crack was most likely from an earlier grounding. No reports of injuries.
