The Super Puma helicopter of the Air Force rescued 22 crew members from the ship “GOODFAITH” which ran aground on the northern coast of Andros . Greek authorities rescued all crew members of a Cypriot-flagged freighter which ran aground off a Greek Aegean island early on Wednesday, the Greek coastguard said on Wednesday.
The “Goodfaith” cargo ship, which was sailing empty from the port of Elefsina, near Athens, to Odessa, Ukraine, was driven ashore off the island of Andros and sent a distress signal in the early morning hours.
All 22 crew members were rescued by helicopters which rushed to the scene, a Greek coastguard official who declined to be named said.
Three tug ships have reached the area which is being hit by strong winds, the official said.
