MSC crew rescued from holed boxship




ENGLISH CHANNEL 18 January – All 26 crew of the container ship MSC Napoli have been picked up from their lifeboat by rescue helicopters today after they abandoned ship in the English Channel. The 4,700-teu vessel sustained damage to its hull from an unconfirmed cause this morning. The engine room was reported to have flooded and the ship began to list, prompting a distress call from a position in the French search and rescue area, 45n-miles off the Lizard peninsula in Southwest England. A French salvage team is now on board the Napoli and will try to attach a line to one of the emergency towage vessels at the scene. Fairplay understands that all containers on board remain safely secured. The 1991-built Napoli is registered in the UK; it is owned and managed by London-based Zodiac Maritime Agencies and operated by Mediterranean Shipping Co. It departed from Antwerp and was outbound for the Far East when it ran into severe gale force 9 winds and 8-9m swell. There is no indication of what caused the hole in the hull and no reports of injury to the seafarers.
