The crew of a dredger boat that helped free a massive container ship that had been stuck in the Suez Canal for almost a week broke into happy chants on Monday.
“Mashhour is No. 1!” shouted the Egyptian crew members of the boat Mashhour, according to a tweet with the footage.
The drudgery crew had just helped extract the Ever Given, a colossal container ship that ran aground in the canal on Tuesday, blocking the crucial global shipping route.
It took the dredger about four days to do the job, aided by other sand-shifting ships, tugs, and the tides.
