Hornblower Ship Crashing Into San Diego Dock

Yesterday, March 31st, 2016 in San Diego CA, a massive whale watching boat called the “Adventure Horn Blower” crashed at high speeds into the Embarcadero as tourists watched in horror. The 150 footer apparently had “mechanical malfunctions” when trying to slow down for landing in the dock.

As a result, 7 passengers were injured, 4 of them being carried off on stretchers. There was another close call, as you see a little old lady scurrying out of the path of the massive boat heading right towards her.

Had she been a little slower, it might have been even more of a tragedy because the boat ripped through wood, metal and concrete like it was butter.
