The Norwegian Rescue Service has released footage of the evacuation of the crew of the Dutch dry cargo ship Eemslift Hendrika in distress during a storm off the coast of Norway.

Rescuers removed the sailors from the board after the crew gave an SOS signal - this happened the day before, on April 5. According to one of the versions, due to strong excitement, the load was displaced, after which a serious roll appeared.

Eight of the twelve sailors were originally evacuated - the captain and three crew members remained on board to fight for survivability. After a while, the situation worsened, including due to the intensification of the storm, and the helicopter pilots took away everyone who was on the ship.

Judging by the footage, some of the sailors managed to climb onto the helicopters by ropes, but not everyone succeeded and several people jumped into the water, from where they were retrieved by rescuers.

Eemslift Hendrika is now drifting in the North Sea about 130 kilometers offshore. It is noted that at present there is a danger of the ship being flooded.

According to preliminary information, a company specializing in offshore operations has already received an order for the rescue of a dry cargo ship. Its employees will have to take the ship in tow and try to take it to a calm area.
