    Background: Two people were injured and the crews badly shaken, when the 80-ton Finnish coaster 'Ceres' collided with a Danish naval depot ship 'Hjaelperen' (Helper) near Copenhagen, Harbour, Nov. 16.

    The bows of the 'ceres' were smashed, and the Danish ship badly holed in her side, mainly above the water line.

    A marine on the Danish depot ship was treated for leg injuries and may not walk again. A young girl in the kitchens of the Finnish coaster was badly scalded.

    Both ships were able to make the quayside under their own steam. 'Ceres' was on her way into Copenhagen with a cargo of paper, while the 'Hjaelperen' was outward bound. Reason for the collision has not been ascertained. Visibility was good but winds very high.
