Crew onboard the Eemslift Hendrika made a distress call on Monday, reporting a heavy list after stormy weather displaced some of its cargo. Some of the crew had to jump into the water because the vessel was leaning so much. All of the 12 were brought to safety. The 111 metre (366 feet) Netherlands-registered ship, which was transporting smaller yachts, had lost power in its main engine and was now drifting towards land.
