The 118 meter long container ship Hanni ran aground on the Elbe near M├╝hlenberger Hole, Germany. The Hanni departed Hamburg for Bremerhaven and was heading to the North Sea when it suffered engine failure while between Blankenese and Finkenwerder.  The Hanni drifted before running aground near the south shore.

A tug was dispatched and was unable to refloat the boxship.  A second attempt failed to free the Hanni even with an additional tug and the rising tide.  The Hanni was finally freed 12 hours later with four tugs. The Hanni proceeded to Hamburg. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
