On February 17, the dredger Margrethe Fighter capsized at the Port of Trelleborg, Sweden. After the vessel capsized, one crewmember was reported as missing and is now presumed dead.
When the incident took place, the ship was working on a berth construction project for a ferry terminal.
Immediately, lifeboats from a nearby Stena Line ferry were the first responders to the casualty. Two crewmembers were saved from the water and taken to a hospital for evaluation. However, a third member and remains missing.
After the accident, the ship briefly stopped commercial traffic in the harbor because of the navigation hazard. Divers also attempted to find the missing seafarer, but with no luck.
Commenting on the capsize, rescue service commander Torbjörn Krokström, said that the chances of finding someone alive are considered small.
Finally, a minor spill, while salvage operations started last weekend.
