Ship Crashes and hits Woodhouse Reef in Sharm El Sheikh Red Sea
Divers diving with elite diving witnessed the crashing of the ship CSCL Hamburg as it crashed into Woodhouse Reef in Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea on 31 st December 2009.
This is the second time that this vessel has been involved in a collision. The last time was on March 5th 2008 but that time was with another vessel named Lian Hua Feng.
That collision happened off the China cost near Shanghai where CSCL Hamburg was heading. The damage then was quite superficial compared to the damaged caused by hitting Woodhouse reef in Sharm El Sheikh Red, Sea.
