MSC cruise ship crashed into a dock and tourist boat in Venice

564 MSC Cruise Crash


The cruise ship MSC Opera crashed into a dock and tourist boat River Countess in Venice, causing injuries to five people. The 2,679-passenger MSC Opera was assisted by two tugs through the canal when it lost control and collided with the dock. While the exact cause of the collision is not known, local media has reported that it is likely that the ship either suffered a blackout or the towing cable broke, and was unable to stop due to strong currents pulling it towards the dock. The hull of MSC Opera as well as the tourist boat have been damaged in the incident.
