A Hamburg Süd containership took out a passenger dock at a ferry terminal in Santos, Brazil on Sunday, and it was all caught on video.

Fortunately no injuries were reported after the 333-meter-long M/V Cap San Antonio lost control and ended up plowing through a ferry loading dock on the Santos Estuary as it was departing the Port of Santos, causing a large gash in the hull.

No word yet on what caused the accident. AIS shows the vessel at an offshore anchorage as of Monday afternoon as the situation is investigated.

Cap San Antonio is a 10,500 TEU-capacity containership flying the flag of Denmark. Delivered in 2014, the ship operates between North Europe and the South America East Coast.

There seems to be no shortage of videos online showing the accident:

Earlier this month we saw a similar out-of-control ship accident at the Port of Kaohsiung in Taiwan when a 316-meter-long OOCL containership took out two cranes at the port. That accident was also caught on video, which you can view here.
