What's life or death about it? The drawbridge was up so nobody was on it probably, the parts that fell down were above and behind the pilothouse so its a good bet nobody was inside them, and they fell straight backward onto the deck so it doesn't look like the hull was compromised, at least not so bad that the ship couldn't make it to a dock quicklike (and judging by where the video was shot, there was probably one nearby).

It was my impression that the pilothouse struck the bridge. If that wasn't the case, then my mistake. However, I didn't find it amusing about people being in danger from the ensuing fire--that was my point.

Yea, ill buy that. However it does seem pretty probably that the guy will be alright... he is close to shore, if he has to jump anyhow.
All in all a good clip thanks for sharing, I saw a clip once where they were see what would happen if a double decker bus hit a over pass in London. Good clip totally smashed up the top of the bus, and must be a real eye opener for the bus drivers to not miss there turn.
