The skyscraper-size ship blocking the Suez Canal was freed today, five days after wedging itself sideways into the banks of one of the world's busiest waterways.
The 1,312-foot, 200,000 metric ton Ever Given, nearly a quarter-mile long, created a shipper's nightmare and captured the public's imagination when it blocked the canal on March 23. It created a traffic jam of more than 360 ships as of Sunday and is costing billions in delayed shipments.
Teams of dredgers and tugboats were able to free the ship's stern on Sunday, moving 330 feet from the western bank. The bow was pulled loose today.
Workers were aided by high tides helped by a full moon. The full moon offers a spring tide, or king tide, in which high tides are higher and the low tides are lower because of the effects of gravity during a straight-line alignment of the Earth, the moon and the sun, USA TODAY reported.
Tugboats are pulling the Ever Given to the canal's Great Bitter Lake, where it will be inspected.
