This Toyota truck dangling from the ship like a bait for a giant fish is the result of an apparent miscommunication between line handlers aboard the container ship MSC Ilona and those at terminal 4 in the Port of Baltimore.
According to jalopnik, “Ocean-cargo news site gCaptain
says a worker on the pier put this line on the bumper of his truck, with the intention of using the truck to untie it. I’m not really sure how that was going to work in the first place, but it didn’t matter because apparently somebody driving the ship started running the winches and somehow yanked the truck straight into the drink”.
…….What if that giant fish comes along and takes a bite off the metallic bait? Just asking.
