Four crew members were successfully rescued two days ago from a 500-tonne ship that ran aground near the Isle of Skye in Scotland.
ndrew MacDonald, the spokesperson for Kyle RNLI Lifeboat, revealed that the vessel had encountered a significant setback as it ran aground during high tide. Consequently, despite the prompt arrival of the rescue team and other assisting parties, the unfortunate circumstances rendered it impossible to successfully refloat the boat.
Portree lifeboat arrived on scene around 7.55pm, and with numerous other vessels in the area also coming to offer assistance, it was decided to take the casualty vessel’s crew off the stricken boat.
Shortly after 9:00pm the crew were retrieved and transferred to a nearby vessel to await the tide coming back in to try and refloat the aground vessel.
