Grounded tanker pulled back into sea
by UPI

SIDMOUTH, England -- The container ship MSC Napoli was pulled back to sea Monday after being grounded off the British coast for six months.

The ship floated free a mile from Sidmouth once huge pumps finished removing 58,000 tons of water that filled the holds, Britain's Sky News reported.

The damage to the Napoli will be checked out by a team of 20 divers.

The crew members of the vessel were airlifted to safety after its hull was damaged in gale force winds in January, Sky News reported.

About 100 containers holding everything from motorcycles to diapers were lost when the ship ran aground and most of the goods were picked up by scavengers.
