"...the high seas caused some of the cargo aboard the vessel to shift. The captain issued a distress call and the Norwegian authorities air lifted the majority of the crew to safety while the captain and three crew members remained aboard attempting to manage the situation. The vessel reportedly lost power later in the day causing the captain and remaining crew to abandon the ship.
The Norwegian Coastal Authority reports that the seas remain too high for its teams forcing them to remain at a distance and observe. Overnight, the largest workboat loaded on the deck of the Eemslift Hendrika fell overboard. It has been located a few nautical miles away. Norwegian authorities also reported that losing the cargo from the deck may have had a positive effect on the stability of the Eemslift Hendrika and might help to avoid the vessel capsizing."
