Holy crap, did you even know they could lose control of something that heavy? A 13,000 ton cargo ship “bumped” into a much smaller barge this morning in Huangpu River after its Nanjing operators lost control of the vessel. It immediately sank the smaller boat and resulted in the death of one 60-year-old female who was knocked into the water and drowned. The crash happened down near the Expo site, and coast guard ships were called in immediately to direct water traffic and eventually to salvage the sunken boat. Unfortunately we can now add dinner cruises to the list of activities we thought were much less vulnerable to freak accidents. Also on that list: eating stuff, riding the bus, metro, or escalators, and walking on the street.
