25 injured in Scotland as ship tilts
In Scotland, a ship has tilted against a quay resulting in 25 people being injured. Of those injured, 15 have been taken to hospital while the remaining ten were treated on-site and released.
The accident is believed to have been caused by strong winds, as confirmed by a local politician who shared a photograph of the vessel leaning against the wall of the dry dock. The ship in question is a research vessel that was owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who passed away in 2018.
According to reports, the vessel was berthed in Leith for an extended period in 2020. Edinburgh Police are urging people to avoid the accident site to allow emergency services to carry out their duties. The Edinburgh city council leader has stated that approximately 50 people were on board when the ship overturned.
