Tanker Runs Aground On Delaware River

Some amateur video has captured the moment a large freighter ran aground in the Delaware River near the Burlington Bristol Bridge on Wednesday.

The Liberian-flagged 600-foot bulk carrier, Agia Irini, was headed southbound when it reportedly lost propulsion and ran aground at approximately 2 p.m., the Coast Guard said in a statement.

No injuries or pollution was reported following the incident.

The ship was refloated and en route to safe anchorage for further Coast Guard investigation, the Coast Guard said.

The local ABC news station has some more on this story HERE.
