On September 28, the 80 meter long self-propelled barge Odin caught fire while berthed at Schwedt, Germany. A deckhand spotted a fire coming from the aft cabin and attempted to extinguish the blaze with the assistance of another deckhand. Their combine effort was not able to control the blaze and the local fire brigades were called to the scene. The fire brigade was able to extinguish the fire and found the body of the master of Odin. The water police have reported that the crew was intoxicated and the fire may be part of a homicide. The Odin had arrived from Magdeburg with a cargo of slag.
The fishing vessel Odin sprung a leak while shrimping off the coast of Port Mansfield, Texas. The three men on board the Odin contacted the Coast Guard that the vessel was taking water through the propeller shaft and was in danger of sinking. The Coast Guard dispatched a Dolphin rescue helicopter to the scene. The helicopter successfully lowered two dewatering pumps to the Odin. With the pumps running, the Odin was able to stay afloat. The fishing vessel Gina Dawn also came to the aid of the Odin. The Gina Dawn took the Odin under tow and proceed back to port. No reports of injury.
