A Maersk containership that lost power was in danger of running aground on an Alaskan island before three tugs successfully towed the vessel to safety.
The 2001-built 4,258 teu Laura Maersk became disabled while abut seven miles north of Akutan Island in the Aleutian chain.
United States Coast Guard (USCG) coordinated the operation whereby three tugs rescued the ship and brought it under tow to Broad Bay, Unalaska in the Aleutians.
No spillage or injuries were reported. An investigation was under way to find the cause of the power loss.
