There was a sailboat – and …
One of our regular readers today complained: that this week the site and the Yacht Russia page in the FB too often wrote about disasters. What to do – here's another one.
At noon today, the container ship ASTROSPRINTER, which followed the Elbe from Hamburg to the North Sea, collided with a wooden sailboat NO.5 ELBE (built in 1883), on board which at that moment there were 43 passengers and crew members.
As a result of the collision, the sailboat, whose restoration was completed, do not believe it, just a week ago, sank. All passengers and crew members rescued, but five of them were injured, one seriously.
An investigation into the incident has begun.
