The German cargo ship "Heinrich Behrmann", was run-aground by heavy seas, after losing power to her main engine, on the beach in Blankenberge, Belgium. The ship was heading for the port at Zeebrugge from Ireland, and was carrying dry cargo, none of which was hazardous. The salvage company Unie Van Redding - En Sleepdienst N.V. was hired to free the ship. Three unsuccessful attempts were made, the second attempt resulted in the injury of two workers when tug boat cables snapped. (Photo © Jock Fistick)
