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.
