Top 5 Sinking Ship (Scary Footage)

A compilation of the best clips of sinking ships, caught on camera. Nr. 5: Is a military/coast guard, filmed sink from a nearby vessel. Nr. 4: Is a bulk carrier who sinks during cargo operation. Nr. 3: Is the American destroyer UUS Radford, that was intentionally sunk to make a artificial reef. Nr. 2: Is a tourist catamaran boat, that capsizes and sink off the Costa Rica coast. The whole accident was filmed by a passangers gopro. Nr. 1: Is the cruise ship Oceanos, that sank in 1991. A rescue helicopter filmed when the ocean liner went down.

I've seen an interview with a survivor of the sinking of the cruiseship/car ferry Estonia in 1994 (800 plus dead), who said he could feel the ship slowly lurching to one side and knew he had to get off the ship; even though the weather outside was bad, he knew it was his only chance to survive, but many other people remained sitting inside the upperdeck lounge area, holding on to anything they could rather than trying to escape. He said he wanted to shout at them to get up and follow him, but he realized he only had seconds left to escape. He wasn't the only surviver, something like 138 managed to survive and many of the dead were never able to get from their cabins to the upper decks, let alone off the ship, but seeing the people on that small boat with the canopy over it makes me understand the behavior of the people on the Estonia. It's more than just fear, though that can make some people freeze up too. I think there's a sense of disbelief; "this can't be happening!" that also prevents people from acting as quickly as they should.
