Terrifying video from the Viking Sky cruise ship which became disabled in rough waters off the western coast of Norway.
Rescue officials said 479 passengers had been rescued from the ship by Sunday, thanks to an airlift that began the previous day after the vessel — carrying 1,373 passengers and crew— sent a mayday call and reported engine trouble. •
The airlift was then halted as two tugboats guided the vessel toward the nearest port. Accompanied by the boats, the ship limped into the Norwegian port of Molde, with 436 passengers and 458 crew members remaining on board.
"We understand 20 people suffered injuries as a result of this incident, and they are all receiving care at the relevant medical centres in Norway, with some already having been discharged," Viking Ocean Cruises, the company that owns and operates the ship, said. | @cbcnews #cruiselife #cruiseship
