A research vessel tips due to strong winds

A large ship tipped over while dry-docked in Scotland, due to strong winds injuring 25 people on March 22nd emergency workers were quoted by media reports.

Police and emergency services were called to the Imperial Dock in Edinburgh after receiving reports that a ship had become dislodged from its holding.


The Scottish Ambulance Service said 15 people were taken to the hospital, while 10 others were treated and discharged at the scene. Local police urged the public to avoid the area to allow access for emergency services.

The ship is leaning to the side at a 45-degree angle. The ship got dislodged from the berth due to strong winds.

The 76-meter (250-feet) long vessel, named the Petrel, was a research vessel equipped with deep-sea exploration technology and has led several high-profile missions to locate historic shipwrecks, including the discovery of the USS Indianapolis in 2017 in the Philippine Sea.

The BBC reported the ship had been moored for the past three years due to challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
