The coast guard is trying to clean up the area by emptying punctured tanks to avoid further oil leakage and no lives were in danger at the cargo ship, as reported by Expressen on Wednesday.
10 sailors were taken off another boat which ran aground two kilometers from Gotland.
However, a 23 year old Polish man died when the Norwegian-registered tug boat he was on capsized, also near Gotland. His five colleagues were rescued.
