Cleaning underneath

Not really a shipping Accident, but as container with 24 tons of oranges, was suppossed to go on board i take the liberty of posting it here.
Expensive way to examine underside.It took 3 mobile cranes to get her back on her wheels.

I was in the office finnishing the stowageplan for this vessel when 1 of the drivers called me on the radio and said : Can you come to terminal and have a look, when i asked why they just said bring your camera :-(
Now it's sort of funny, but i wasn't happy that night, i can assure you.

Saw something similar some years back. High stacker in a depot was picking 20ft open top containers (sans tarps) 6 high. After lifting and topping back the whole lot went backwards over the forklift, mast and all.

Reason; about 10 tons of rain water in the container. Driver ok, forklift near write off.

Portland Port has one of these and last summer I was invited as a casual to paint the vehicle. Good job that never happened to me!!!

I'm just wondering if the big puddle underneath the rig is from the driver realizing how much trouble he's in.
