Drunk Russian captain vs bridge


A drunk Russian sailor entered a cargo ship in a bridge in Busan, South Korea, and the moment of impact was filmed.

According to The Moscow Times quoting the Russian press, the captain, most likely drunk and poorly acquainted with English, entered with the vessel under the Russian flag on the motorway bridge by making a 5-meter hole in it.

The captain of the cargo ship of over 6,000 tons had an alcohol level above the legal limit, according to the South Korean coastguard. The incident surfaced by the rooms did not record injuries but the bridge was closed to temporary traffic.

At the same time, the police are trying to determine why the cargo ship headed directly to the bridge when it was actually to go in the opposite direction. The Russian captain ignored the warnings of the coast guard because he did not understand English very well, he noted the Russian RBC site.

An hour before hitting the bridge, the Russian ship hit another ship: a cruise ship, stopped in the harbor.
