Mother and seven-year-old child rescued after falling overboard from ferry

A woman and her seven-year-old child have reportedly been rescued after falling overboard from a ferry travelling from Sweden to Poland.

Rescue services told Swedish news agency TT that the seven-year-old fell in and the woman jumped in after.

The two were being winched to a helicopter and were being taken to a hospital, Stefan Land from the Swedish Maritime Administration told TT.

He did not specify their condition.


The ferry, Stena Spirit, was in the Baltic Sea midway through its journey to Gdynia in Poland from Karlskrona in Sweden when the incident occurred on Thursday.

A large rescue effort was initiated, with several helicopters and NATO ships in the area helping out, TT reported.

The Stena Spirit can hold up to 1,300 passengers, according to Stena Line’s website.
