In the morning July 31 when vessel was near Elsinore, Denmark, three crew members jumped overboard. Two reached Danish coast and one, wearing survival suit, reached Helsingborg, Sweden. Danish police detained the duet, while the third one in Sweden disappeared. Either they were all planning to get an asylum, or there was some trouble on board.
