Engine failed: Norwegian ferry in distress

A ship of the Hurtigruten shipping company was in an awkward position on Tuesday evening. It got into distress. According to a Twitter message from the rescue center in southern Norway, the aircraft on the passenger ship had failed.

A little later, the rescue center reported that the “Kong Harald” had dropped anchor and got a machine running again. At around 10.15 p.m., the ship with 306 people on board was able to sail towards Julsundet on its own.
