Watch: Dramatic rescue of crew from sinking cargo ship in North Sea

The crew of a Dutch cargo ship caught in stormy weather off the coast of Norway have been evacuated.

Some of the crew members jumped into the ocean before being rescued by helicopter, while others were hoisted directly from the deck.

All members of the crew were brought to safety from the badly listing Eemslift Hendrika.

Local authorities said the abandoned vessel is adrift and in danger of sinking and causing an oil spill.

The vessel is currently some 80 miles off the coast in the North Sea.
