Hello fellow tankers!

I'm really glad that I can make this topic!!!
Because 2 hours ago I was running for my life...
I'm a technician responsible for the maintenance of containercranes in the harbour of Antwerp,and I had to do preventive maintenance on a crane
.
Tralala just another day at work,parked myself under the crane,and my colleague gets a phonecall so we remain in our car.

At that moment there was a huge ship incoming(nothing special you think).
But the port pilot made a huge mistake and rammed an other ship that already was docked,in panic he made a wrong manoeuvre!
That resulted in a collision with the boat and the crane I was parked under!!(infact it were 2 cranes parked next to eachother).
Oh man it was really wierd everything happend in slowmotion and yet so fast!
The bow of the ship was pushing the 2 cranes and twisting them while i was looking and asking myself the question:
This shouldn't be happening...


WAKE UP CALL!!!!1111!!1 RUUUUUUNNNNNN!!!!!!
I dont think I ever ran that fast in my life and the youtube vid kept playing in my mind.
In my mind I was already beginning to think how/where the crane would collapse...

Eventually the cranes didn't collapse but man there was a huge skidmark in my underwear!

The crane was pushed from its rails everything twisted (engines/driveshafts etc..)The whole crane was angled ready to go down...

Pfff man i'm still trembling...


This is the vid that was playing in my mind:
