Main free again
The "Klosterrneuburg" was refloated in the afternoon of Dec 4 and towed away. Salvage attempts had started at midday, but only when the two sections were divided, the salvors had success. Then the fairway was surveyed ands at 5.29 p.m. the Main was free for ship traffic. After two ice breakers did not achieve success, the river authority called a third ship at 3 p.m., and the Main level was heightened. The Police Aschaffenburg launched an investigation. The barge train had grounded when trying to pass an approaching ship which was underway towards Linz.
