The 20 meter long former fishing vessel Langeland 1 ran aground near Wischafen, Germany. The Langeland 1 was headed to Hamburg from Kiel when it grounded on the receding tide. After the grounding, the vessel suffered a list and nearly capsized. Authorities were alerted and secured the vessel with lines to keep it upright while booms were placed around the hull in case of any pollution released.
Later on the incoming tide, the Langeland 1 suffered water ingress which had to be controlled by additional dewatering pumps. With the rising tide, authorities were able to refloat the Langeland 1 and tow it to a berth in Wischafen.
