The perilous situation arose due to adverse weather conditions that left the vessel in imminent danger of sinking.

Prompted by the gravity of the circumstances, the entire crew was evacuated from the Nordea Star, following the captain's explicit instructions.

Abandoning the ship became a necessary measure as the crew grappled with the challenging conditions threatening the vessel's stability.

With the crew safely evacuated, a race against time commenced to salvage the imperiled ship. The shipowner took decisive action by enlisting the assistance of a tugboat and initiating a towing operation to relocate the Nordea Star to safety.

The tugboat, specifically hired for this mission, began the task of towing the distressed vessel to İnebolu.
