Nothing new has surfaced with the grounding of MSC’s 93,000-ton ship MSC Poesia over the weekend, except the below video.

The video, which was taken from a dive excursion operator, shows what the ship did to the reef as it plowed into it just off the Coast of Grand Bahamas Island.

The reef is in 16’ of water. The MSC Poesia requires at least 30’ to operate safely.
