Two cargo ships collided in the Baltic Sea between the Danish island of Bornholm and the southern Swedish town of Ystad. At least two people were killed when a ship capsized in the collision.

However, it was not immediately clear whether there were any casualties.

The accident happened around 3:45 a.m. local time on Monday between the territorial waters of Sweden and Denmark.

According to the news agency Reuters, Denmark's KARIN HOEJ and Britain's SCOT CARRIER have clashed in the Baltic Sea. Preparations are underway for a major rescue operation after the two cargo ships collided.

The Danish cargo ship capsized in the collision. There were two people on board. It was not immediately clear if they were alive.

However, the British ship is in operation and its crew is safe.

Reuters reports that several rescue boats and a Danish helicopter have been deployed from Bornholm Island after the crash.

Sweden's local news agency TT quoted a spokesman for the country's Coast Guard as saying that one of the wrecked ships was 90 meters long and the other 55 meters long.

"We hear people screaming from the cold water," said Jonas Franzen, a spokesman for the Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA).

So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange. The crash site is still dark and extremely cold weather is prevailing.
