The 21 meter long tug En Avant 5 capsized on the Maas River near Dordrecht, Netherlands. The tug was engaged with another tug dragging a barge when it capsized. The 4 crewmen on board were able to jump safely into the water. A ferry picked up the men who were taken to hospital to be checked out. The En Avant 5 is still attached to the barge. The cause of the capsizing is not known. Authorities are conducting an investigation into the incident.
