It was said to be 'soft' grounding, the result of engine failure. The Liberian-flagged ship was refloated four hours later with the help of tugs, and anchored at Savannah outer anchorage.
Sunday morning, the Korea Shipping-managed vessel was at anchor, and bound for Fort Lauderdale, where it had been expected to arrive Monday before the grounding occurred.
