The 26 meter long pushboat/towboat Edda with the 86 meter long tanker-barge CT 1803 ran aground on the Elbe River near Klöden, Germany. The vessels were proceeding on the Elbe bound for Magdeburg when the Edda struck an underwater obstruction causing rudder failure. The CT 1803 spun until it was perpendicular to the river blocking traffic on the Elbe. Authorities dispatched a workboat to the scene to the pull the CT 1803 free. The first attempt by the workboat failed and it was determined a more powerful vessel was required. A second pushboat was dispatched from Torgau and arrived on scene. These vessels were able to pull the CT 1803 free later that day. No reports of injuries or pollution released on either vessel.
