When A Cargo Ship Loses Control Of Its Anchor, Complete Chaos Happens

This is what happens when an anchor on a freighter gets loose…. According to Redditor badkarma12, here’s basically what’s happening… “they let off the brakes too much and the momentum built up before they realized.

Kinda like when you turn on the shower all the way to hot while there’s still cold water in the lines and it ends up scalding you. Anyway, the momentum built passed the ability for the break to stop it and the weight of the chain just ripped through.”

Well that was terrifying… Let us know what you think in the comment section below, and don’t forget to give this a share on Facebook before you go. (h/t Reddit)
