A Chinese cruise vessel, recently built hit a suspension bridge because of miscalculation. The bridge on the river Oujiang in Wenzhou city, Zhejiang was too short for the ship who just departed from the shipyard. The newly-built US $44 million “Mingzhu No. 7″ passenger vessel struck the bottom of the bridge 6 days ago shearing off 2 of the ships funnels and causing some damage to the bridge.
The master of the vessel has admitted that he had make miscalculation for the bridge, the lack of passengers and cargo made the ship taller.
Building a 1,000 passenger passenger ship didn't have people at the time of the accident.
