    A collision causes a massive hole in the side of a ship.

  • Description

    Gravesend, Kent.

    Title: "STEAMERS COLLIDE - Several sleeping seaman killed and injured in disastrous collision between American Merchant and Matatua".

    Point of view shot from the front of a boat travelling towards a ship with a huge hole in the side, sailors on the ship look down at it from the deck. As we get close to the hole we see that a collision with another vessel has caused the metal shell to ripped open, revealing the shattered wooden beams inside. Looking through the hole, sailors can be seen inside clearing some of the debris.
