  • Description

    River Elbe, Germany

    SALVAGING STRANDED SHIP

    German commentary throughout.
    V.S. Floodwater caused by high winds that turned the tide. Shots of flood damage. V.S. When the floodwater ebbed it left a small cargo ship "Gertrud Luhrs" high and dry. Film shows efforts to refloat the ship. High pressure water and cranks and a big pull from a tug and she's free. It took twelve days.
