Dozens of Cars Slide Off Ship in Heavy Seas [VIDEO]

For those of you who are considering shipping your vehicle by sea, make sure it’s secured to the ship before the ship leaves port. Apparently it doesn’t hurt to ask…

On the evening of February 3, 2012, 64 vehicles slid off the deck of the Cambodian-flagged cargo ship Aston Gate while traveling from Toyama, Japan to Vladivostok, Russia.

According to a source, the ship had lost power and was awaiting assistance prior to the incident.
