Yesterday night, the boom of a container crane broke and crashed onto Maersk Karachi while the vessel was being loaded. A man, most likely the crane operator whose cabin crashed down from a 40-metre height, is missing.
The ship traffic around the accident site has been suspended. The cause of the accident has yet to be determined.
