Some new video posted by Norway’s Hovedredningssentralen (spelling?) shows just how hairy the situation was yesterday for the stricken Tide Carrier off Norway.

As we reported, the 263-meter barge carrier was dragging anchor dangerously close to shore just south of Bergen while dealing with some heavy weather. During the day helicopters evacuated all non-essential personnel and dropped two specialists aboard who prepared the ship for a tow. We also heard one crew member sustained a leg injury, which after watching this is easy to understand why.

The Tide Carrier was pulled away from shore early Thursday morning.

No pollution has been reported. You can read our earlier story here.
