Cruise ship gangway collapses in high winds

By: thinkSPAIN , Thursday, March 5, 2009

"One person was injured early this afternoon when a gangway joining a cruise ship to the passenger terminal in Palma harbour collapsed. Three crew members also ended up in the sea and had to be fished out by the rescue services.

According to the Port Authority, the accident occurred as a result of the strong winds affecting the Balearic Islands today."
