WARNING: GRAPHIC PHOTO

This week’s incident photo is not for the faint of heart. Bob Couttie’Maritime Accident Casebook gives the details:

The following photo is a disturbing image and we gave considerable thought to whether or not its publication would serve a useful purpose. It’s from the Blue Oceana website and tells more than any official report possibly could of the need to be safety conscious around containers. It is from an accident in Malaysia in 2005. As the Blue Oceana makes clear, it’s a continuing problem.
