Let’s face it, any form of transport has its risks. With planes, you have the omnipresent threat of mechanical failure sending you hurtling to your doom – or in a less catastrophic scenario, severe turbulence throwing you out of your seat. Boats sometimes catch on fire, sink, or do what you see in this CCTV video from a Pacific Sun cruise ship.
It almost looks fun, until you start thinking that all of the furniture flying around could actually be dangerous – which is about the same time as it switches to the ship’s engineering bay, where you see a worker narrowly avoiding being squished by some pipes, a cabinet and a fork lift.
What’s interesting is that the worker in question wonders into the frame for a second, instantly realizes what is going on and gets out of the way in the nick of time – which indicates to me that this is something that happens from time to time rather than just an isolated incident.
