i wonder who lost there job because of that?

the boat was not moving. The boat that the person holding the camera was on is moving, but not the boat that the crane fell on.

I've worked installing the rigging on containers for travel before, basically a slave and I've never seen anything this crazy go down. It looks like the operator tried to raise it and the container got twisted in there. Those cranes are made to lift both cables at the same time too, so this is strange

Looks like the container was secure to the boat in the bottom right corner,the operator tried to lift it , but obviously the crane overstressed from that heavy load,i wonder if there are lifting security devices installed on those gantry cranes,i mean something that shut down the hoists if the safe working load limit is acheived?Any gantry crane operator here on mucho!?
