The ship was on it's way from Sweeden to Holland with 2100 tons of timber, when a heavy storm blow into the area. The ship got into troubles, about 40NM from the danish westcoast, when the machine stoped and the seawater was getting inside!
15 meter high waves and floating timber made it very difficult and dangerous to rescue the crew at 7 men. 2 helicopters and the danish Inspection-ship "Vestkysten" was involved in this action. A rescuer (Ole Stie Olesen) on the Inspection-ship died by the event, but all other was saved!
You can read more about this wreck in my article, published at The Scandinavian Underwater magazine "DYK" August, 2001
