What happened?

A huge crane came crashing down onto a dock after a container ship careered into it. The catastrophic shipping incident took place on 14 July afternoon in the port of Semrang, the capital city of Central Java in Indonesia.

A video of the smash shows a boat piled high with containers slowly drifting towards the harbour wall. A number of men can be heard shouting animatedly in the background, attempting to warn the people below the vast metal crane.

The ship makes contact with one of the legs of the machine and it comes crashing down, collapsing over the containers and vehicles. Beeping and yelling can be heard in the background as a man speaks frantically over a radio.

No report on damages yet

Photos taken after the smash show numerous trucks tipped on their sides with the top of one HGV wrenched from its axis.

“We have not yet received information about the victims of this incident and hopefully there are no casualties.”
