The 20 meter long fishing vessel Langeland 1 became disabled in the Kiel Bight near Möltenort, Germany. The Langeland 1 was proceeding with 25 persons on board when it suffered engine damage. As conditions were worsening with increased strong winds, the adrift Langeland 1 requested assistance. The DGzRS lifeboat was dispatched and reached the scene a short time later. The lifeboat crew was able to get a towline connected to the Langeland 1 and proceeded to tow the disabled vessel to Möltenort. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
