Ferry stranded in rough sea off the coast of Croatia

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A ferry carrying almost 350 people is drifting in the Adriatic Sea after experiencing technical problems.

The ferry ‘Aurelia’ left the Italian city of Ancona late on Wednesday heading for Split in Croatia.

But it lost power in one of its engines, leaving it drifting in the northern Adriatic.

The ferry’s owners, the Italian company SNAV, said that mechanics on board are doing everything to fix the problem and bring the passengers to shore.

Two tugboats were sent to rescue the boat but they struggled with the weather amid fiver metre waves.
