Twenty-five people were injured when a ship tipped over in a dry dock in Leith, Edinburgh, the Scottish Ambulance Service has said.
Fifteen people were taken to hospital while a further 10 patients were treated and discharged at the scene on Wednesday morning.
The ambulance service said 11 patients were taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and four to Western General Hospital.
Police, ambulances and the fire service were called to a report that a ship had become dislodged from its holding at Imperial Dock in Leith at around 8.35am.
The Scottish Ambulance Service sent five ambulances, an air ambulance, three trauma teams and other resources to the scene.

NHS Lothian earlier said it was “on standby to receive a number of patients” at the A&E department at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary from the scene and urged others not to attend unless in an emergency.
The 76m (250ft) Petrel, a research vessel, was previously bought and outfitted by the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen but is no longer owned by his estate.
A wind speed of 38mph was recorded in Edinburgh at 8am on Wednesday, while a 44mph gust was recorded at 9am, according to Met Office data.
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “We received a call at 0829 hours today to attend an incident in Leith.
“We have dispatched five ambulances, an air ambulance, three trauma teams, our special operations team, three paramedic response units and one patient transport vehicle.
“We transported 15 patients to hospital; 11 to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and four to Western General Hospital. A further 10 patients were treated and discharged at the scene.”

“Police were called to attend at around 8.35am on Wednesday and officers remain at the scene.
“The public are asked to avoid the area to allow emergency service access.”
Leith councillor Adam McVey said the ship became dislodged in strong winds and he described the incident as “terrifying” for those on board.
