    Re: Random maritime accidents.

    It doesn't help even with three mikes now:

    Unless they are of the under water type.

    Costa Concordia as you have never seen her before:


    And finally some good news:

    Replacement for Asimut's wreck is ready, but occupied.

            A Cruise ship hit a bridge in China. Don't know if this work, but here is a link to a video: http://bcove.me/jlnl7b8b

            According to the as normal well informed commentator; the ship hit the bridge because the captain didn't take into consideration that the ship had no passengers and no cargo on board. This resulted in it breaking it's "chimney".

              Just as well no coal leaked out then!

              The 'Indie' and ITN are both supposed to be well informed - shame this one slipped through.

                                Here is a link to the hoist cam & helicopter during the rescue. A few short clips made it on the news but this is 11+ minutes including the comms between the crew and the altitude warning system getting in an occasional word.
