So a Norwegian Navy frigate collided with an oil tanker, and has had to be run aground to keep from sinking outright. Some pictures have shown a massive amount of damage above the waterline at the back of the ship, no idea as to the extend of damage below the waterline, but the ship is tipped over nearly on it's side and had to be run aground to avoid outright capsizing. Numerous crew members where injured, but fortunately no fatalities have occured

It looks like they’re still worried about the ship sinking. I hope they can get it stabilized.

From the looks of pictures, the ship has either been successfully run aground or placed in very shallow water. It, not a full 90 degree angle, but damned close. I'd lay offs if this accident had happened in deeper water, that thing would most definitely have sunk.

It was intentionally run aground due to the damage
