The 73 meter long self-propelled barge Emri ran aground on the Bol near Breskens, Netherlands. The Emri had departed from Terneuzen with a cargo of sands when it touched bottom. The crew was unable to refloat the vessel and requested assistance. Two tugs along with a KNRM lifeboat arrived on scene and assisted in pulling the Emri free an hour later. The Emri was escorted back to Terneuzen to be inspected. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
