The original humorous clip was associated with a tanker that had a fractured hull causing a spark and fire, then,.................the front fell off. Actually the bow separated from the remainder of the hull. This was many years ago when single hull tankers were still the rule of the day. I believe I first saw it over 15 years ago..
The Estonia was a tragedy. The only saving grace was that it, along with the Herald of Free Enterprise capsize, led to many new safety rules regarding the construction and operation of RO/RO passenger ferries..
