Update On The Capsizing Of TCG Değirmendere
3 Jan 2014 4 Comments
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.
