Om board the boat are 14 crew members, and the crew started to get sick early in the fishing trip.  At first  it was thought that these were

traditional flu symptoms,  but when more and more people on Valdimar GK started to get sick,

The boat was send to town of Njarðvík and all the crew members was taken to hospital in Keflavík and there the doctors
