The 68 meter long self-propelled barge Euroship 1 grounded on the Danube River near Medved’ov, Slovakia. The vessel with its cargo of 30 tons of steel coils became disabled after its rudder was jammed by a log. The Euroship 1 drifted as it was pulled by the strong current towards shore. The vessel finally went aground onto an embankment. Later the Euroship 1 began to list as the water level on Danube River dropped. The list increased allowing water ingress into the cargo holds. Booms were placed around the vessel after some pollution was released. Authorities have requested that the 1,700 gallons of diesel fuel along with 70 litres of oil to be pumped off. Reports state the Euroship 1 suffered significant damage beyond repair and the vessel will not be salvaged. No reports of injuries.
