One day after a fire on board a Norwegian cruise liner killed two crew members and forced the evacuation of 260 others, rescue teams raced to pump water from the hull of the ship as it came dangerously close to tipping over.

Early on Friday, the ship was listing nearly 22 degrees after taking in a dangerous amount of water, the Norway International Network reported. A Dutch salvage team placed three pumps inside the vessel Friday morning, and by midday workers were able to reduce this ship's list to about 17 degrees. That brings it just below the "critical line" of 20 degrees, at which tipping over is of serious concern.

"At the moment, it looks promising," Police Chief Jon Steven Hasseldal told reports at the dockside. "It's still a serious situation ... but now there is a bit more stability in the ship."
