The video depicts a ferry crushing into a breakwater at the Port of Las Palmas, on April 21st. Thirteen minutes after leaving the port, the ro/pax ferry, named Volcán de Tamasite, collided against the shoulder of a pier, in Canarias, Spain.
The cause of the accident was said to be the ship’s lost control, because the power generator stopped and the emergency power supplies were not activated. The collision caused a collapse of part of the breakwater, which crushed cars parked in the area.
Furthermore, an oil spill was reported, as the collision caused the damaging of fuel lines, existing in the dock, releasing about 15,000 gallons of diesel into the water. The Spanish Maritime Safety Agency (Salvamento Maritimo) in coordination with local authorites is responding to the oil spill.
The vessel, operated by Naviera Armas company, was carrying approximately 170 people, 13 of whom were reported slightly injured.
