The Ever Given attempted to pass through the canal while en route to Rotterdam, Netherlands but ran aground at about 6:00am Tuesday, local time, according to a report from maritime website Fleet Mon.

“As of 1440 UTC March 23, the giant ship was still aground with tugs attempting to refloat her,” the website reported. 

‘That ship is super stuck’

An image posted to Instagram by Julianne Cona from a nearby ship shows the Ever Given almost completely sideways in the narrow canal. 

“From the looks of it that ship is super stuck,” she said in a comment. 

“They had a bunch of tugs trying to pull and push it earlier but it was going nowhere. There is a little excavator trying to dig out the bow.”
