Container carrier requires aid to make it to Port Everglades, say witnesses
A container ship arrived at Port Everglades Monday night, escorted by two emergency vessels and at least three tugboats, report witnesses who viewed the scene from the Sky Harbour high-rise that overlooks the port.
At least 12 containers were at a 45-degree angle in the aft section of the ship, said witness Lou Gnandt.
"You can see all of the containers falling off and everything," he said.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office confirmed an emergency response team was deployed dockside at approximately 10 p.m.
