It is reported by eye witnesses that during the loading of Liebherr cranes on to the Jumbo Vision in Rostock the boom of one of the vessel’s cranes contacted one of the Liebherr LHM550 harbour cranes already on deck. Reports say that this caused the first crane to fall in the water which subsequently caused the vessel to list resulting in the second crane falling into the water.
