Rescue of Aztec Maiden unsuccessful?

Wijk aan Zee, January 21 2012, 1.39 pm

The tugs are the entire morning trying to get the bow of the Aztec Maiden run to the sea and keep her steady. Hereby broke the hawser of the tugboat of the Coast Guard. This made it uncertain whether the ship could be pulled to sea. During high tide around 2.00 pm, the Aztec Maiden was still stuck. When the tug of the Coast Guard was fastened another towing cable the tugboats succeeded around 5.00 pm. The KNRM kept an eye on things.
