Workers had a dramatic escape from the 27.5-metre explorer yacht Bäden, which sank as it was launched on Sunday at Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes, Washington. The video below shows workers and rescuers struggling to free one man trapped below as the yacht suddenly rolled and started to sink. No one was seriously hurt in the incident, although a number of workers needed treatment for minor injuries. The cause of the accident is not yet known. The yacht had been built at Northern Marine’s facility.
