Video: Scary Ship Launch

By Accidents

A dramatic footage shows how a vessel launching can go spectacularly wrong and dangerous.

The video was filmed last year at the Marinette shipyard (Wisconsin). During the launch of the vessel, the wooden construction holding the ship in a sidewards position unfortunately breaks down at the moment when the vessel is sliding into the water.

The result is a wave filled with debris against the camera.

According to YouTube, the video was filmed by Jason Bundoff who luckily suffered only slight bruises and scratches.
