Brazilian tall ship collides with bridge

The Brazilian navy tall ship Cisne Branco collided with a draw bridge over the Guayas River in Ecuador on Monday.

Video of the incident was posted online and shows the tall ship pinned broadside against the bridge after apparently attempting to navigate between the bridge’s open span.

The Navy said the accident was likely the cause of strong currents, but the exact causes and circumstances remain under investigation.
