A passenger cruise ship in Italy was caught on camera just a moment after it collided with rocks in a port. The incident is said to have happened when the captain “lost control” of the vessel due to a “technical issue”.

Smaller boats can be seen moving closer to the ship as they try to help maneuver it back into the water. The sound of frantic and concerned voices can also be heard.

The incident reportedly happened when the boat was attempting to dock in a small port on the island of San Nicola in the Isole Tremiti archipelago in the Adriatic Sea in eastern Italy’s Apulia region. The ferry is owned by a local company called Tirrenia.
