Pilot boat sank, after understood, being crashed between container ship bulbous bow and pier, but was quickly recovered by crane and placed on pier. Boat luckily, was unmanned at the time of an accident. Container ship wasn’t identified, and there are 3 MSC container ships at Gioia Tauro, as of evening Jan 18, but available information points at MSC ADELAIDE, she was in process of berthing on arrival from Genoa.

According to further information, the boat involved was NOT a pilot boat but a mooring boat. A closer look at the photo would have been enough. We have taken over the first reports too fast. In the future we will pay more attention, because we want to report quickly, but above all safely and seriously.
