Crew rescued from ship off the coast of Ireland

Video shows a coal-carrying vessel stuck in waves more than six-meters high off the coast of Ireland on Tuesday (October 20), according to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

The RNLI said the vessel lost power and drifted close to rocks, prompting them to deploy three lifeboats as part of an operation that lasted more than 12 hours.

Nine crew members stayed on the ship while the rescue was underway.
