    Thanks for notifying Alan,

    Lucky thing the river cruise boat was pushed away from the quay, instead of being smashed between the cruise ship and the quay, or being pushed under . . :eek:

    ‘‘ . . . . injuring four people . . . . no major injuries have been reported . . . . ’’ - Seen the scale of the accident they were quite lucky . . :)

    From another perspective. Notice some people at 0:25 trying unsuccessfully to get off the rammed boat.

    There's always a lot of thoughtful insight in the comments, of which I have no doubt....

    ‘‘ Oooweee, someone is going to have a lot of paperwork to fill out.... — A lot of underwear to clean also ’’
