The 82 meter long, 3200 dwt freighter Phantom became disabled while off Öland, Sweden. The Phantom loaded with lumber bound for Casablanca suffered a cargo shift resulting in a severe list. Part of the deck cargo broke loose and fell overboard. The crew of six on board contacted the Swedish Coast Guard who dispatched vessels and a helicopter to the scene. The helicopter first arrived and winched the crew to safety. Later a Coast Guard vessel was able to attach a line and took the Phantom under tow. The vessels were reported to be heading to Oskarshamn. Reports state there is a risk that the Phantom may capsize before reaching safety due to heavy seas in the area. Environmental vessels are also standing by in case pollution is released.
