Copenhagen rescue services are battling to get a truck out of Christianhavns
Canal after its driver forgot to pull the handbrake and the vehicle rolled
into the waterway.
“The driver said that he had forgotten the handbrake and the truck was
probably blown down into the canal by the wind,” Fire Chief Kristian Levy
Levy says that the fire brigade is working hard to extract the errant vehicle
in order to make sure its fuel tank does not leak into the canal –
ironically enough in an area just outside the Environment Board.
The vehicle was carrying canisters of detergents which also toppled into the
canal, but the fire brigade says these do not pose a risk and are being
fished out of the canal.
