The damaged Hyundai Confidence has been repaired and is heading to the Port of Long Beach, a day after a crane accident left it drifting in the North Pacific.
Two crewmembers were injured after a crane fell into the 938-foot ship's engine in 20-foot seas late Tuesday. The ship was moving at about nine knots Wednesday after the crew repaired a lube oil pump, the Associated Press reported, quoting a Coast Guard official in Juneau.
The 5,500-TEU-class vessel was disabled about 880 miles south of Kodiak, Alaska.
One of the crew members has a broken arm and leg, and the other has a sprained ankle. They are being treated by onboard medical personnel.
The Coast Guard said the Panama-flagged Confidence was carrying 2,000 containers. The ship, built in 2003, had departed from Busan, South Korea Jan. 23 on Hyundai's PSW service and was scheduled to arrive at the Port of Long Beach Feb. 2, according to a schedule on Hyundai's Web site.
