        On 3th June 1955, when arriving to Avilés, she grounded on Piedra Perdida. The damages were extensive and the boilers and engine rooms were flooded. She was refloated 16 days later and towed to the San Balandrán beach, where was grounded to avoid her sunking. Once the water leaks were provisionally repaired, what took 60 days , she was towed to Gijón to be repaired in drydock.
