Docking accident caught on video as containership wipes out two gantry cranes.
The 8,540-teu OOCL Durban has been involved in an accident while going alongside at the Port of Kaohsiung, Taiwan at 11:30 local time.
The Nissen Kaiun-owned boxship misjudged its manoeuvre entering the port and came too close to a smaller Yang Ming boxship, which was alongside the dock.
It scraped the smaller vessel and knocked over two gantry cranes, which in turn toppled a number of container stacks.
One person was injured and two people were trapped in the wreckage. The trapped dockworkers were freed after 75 minutes and were not injured.
