The Johanna Josephine hull was breached and the dredger suffered water ingress. The dredger flooded and sank leaving only the deck excavator and the stern visible.  No reports of injuries.  A DGzRS lifeboat and water police boat responded to the incident. Divers sealed the leak and the Johanna Josephine was refloated.  The cargo of stone was lightered off before the dredger was towed to a shipyard in Wilhelmshaven.
