Update On The Capsizing Of TCG Değirmendere

A video showing the capsizing of the tug TCG Değirmedere has been published on the internet.

This video contradicts many facts of the news story I have based my reporting earlier: apparently there is no order to abandon the ship, the trying to balance the ship. Everything happens to quickly and I hate to say that most of the original news story I have used is full of uncastrated adult male bovine droppings.

Here is the link to the video: http://videogaleri.gazetevatan.com/video-izle/10-sehit-veren-Romorkor-un-alabora-olma-ani-cep-telefonunda-MsfuDSwaU55J.html

It is still early to pin point the exact course of the accident but it seems that a number of mistakes caused this incident.

    I have to agree about there having had to be mistakes. I’m wondering about the decision to try to balance the ship, and how that process was carried out. Very sad for the 10 souls lost and their families.

  2. I just want to make sure that there was no effort to balance the ship. It happens all to quick.
