Terrifying footage has emerged of the moment a cargo ship crashes through a concrete walkway in Bangkok causing tourists to flee for their lives.
Local media report that the colossal out-of-control container ship was just leaving the port in Thailand when strong currents and poor weather ran it aground on the Chao Phraya River, the Daily Mail reports.
Surveillance cameras recorded the entire accident, including the moment passers-by were forced to flee when they saw the ship about to crash.
Thankfully the local coast guard reported no civilian injuries, and none of the ship’s crew were hurt.
The ship itself suffered several hull breaches below the waterline, but managed to stay afloat until two coast guard tugboats returned it to Bangkok Port for full inspection and repairs.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
