One of three African stowaways briefly escaped from a Maersk Tankers ship in Spain as the Danish company continues to try to resolve their presence on board.

The man is believed to have broken out of his cabin on the 38,000-dwt Harald Maersk (built 2009) at the port of Vigo.

Maersk Tankers confirmed to TradeWinds that the stowaway escaped on 12 February.
