Kiwi Captures Cruise Ship Crash



A passenger has recorded the moment when a luxury cruise ship collided with another vessel.

What happened?

A Kiwi woman managed to film the dramatic moment when luxury cruise ship Seabourn Encore collided with another vessel, the Milburn Carrier II, in the port of Timaru, New Zealand.

“Oh, this is not good,” the woman can be heard exclaiming, as the ship starts to drift and break free of its moorings.

“Look at it.”

“I hope you’re getting all this on video,” the woman’s male companion chimes in.

“‘Course I am,” she replies. “I can’t stop shaking. He’s still got the ladder down… he’s going to hit that Milburn. Oh my God!”

“Where’s the blinking’ tugs?” the woman can be heard asking. “Look at these guys running on the ship!”

Mooring issues:

“There were mooring issues with the ship and a strong southerly wind blew it away from the wharf,” Harbour master Jim Dilley told after the incident.

Investigation launched:

Both ships sustained damage and an inquiry has been launched by the New Zealand Transport Accident Commission.

None of the 600 passengers and crew on board was injured during the accident.
