Container ship MILANO BRIDGE in the afternoon Apr 6 contacted gantry crane 85 at Busan New Port container terminal while proceeding to berth 7 with pilot on board, then she contacted berthed container ship SEASPAN GANGES, and moving on momentum further on, contacted cranes 81 and 84. Crane 85 collapsed, cranes 81 and 84 were derailed, crane 85 operator was slightly injured. SEASPAN GANGES left port shortly after accident, understood damages were slight or none. MILANO BRIDGE as of 1100 UTC wasn’t yet moored, probably because of crane debris on her stern.

Clean missed the second crane, though it looked like the ship was lined up perfectly to get two-for-two.
I saw like an industry report about the incident that said it actually bumped BOTH of those next two cranes just enough to derail them, but not enough to damage them.

The report said it also bumped the ship that was docked in front of it, but you can't see it from any of the camera angles.

I just rewatched O Brother, Where Art Thou? by the Coen Brothers, and got some weird 2020 vibes from this scene. Can't really explain why.
