Crank up the volume for this mishap. I'm not sure what the crew was thinking. Seems like they were going too fast to dock, then tried to make an evasive turn to avoid colliding with the docked ship seen in the background. I read the crane operator was the only one injured with a broken ankle.


A container ship from the Japanese shipping company ONE has collided with a crane in the port of Busan, South Korea. The terminal crane immediately collapsed and partly ended up on the ship. The incident happened Monday afternoon local time.

That will amount to a number of different insurance claims, on various types of policies amounting to an ungodly amount of money

AMAZED to hear just one injury from this and no fatalities, holy crap that was bad

q1 - was the vessel under control of her own captain - or port pilot ?

it appears to me that they were appempting a moring that should have taken 30 minites - in just 10

Looked like the ship was still steaming forward and to starboard when the tug was trying to slow it down in reverse, with the lead tug trying to push the bow to port. Looks like the tugs were trying to do the right thing, when the captain of the vessel was doing the opposite.

ETA - BTW, OP, you might want to check your video link, it's not working. Says it has been removed. I had to go to YT to see it.

better vid - with 2 POV sources



the first is clearer - and clearly demonstrates " too fast "

the wind is not favourable - but they have a weatherstation on board - to tell them that - and they SHOULD compensate
