Video from the Karachi port in Pakistan showed multiple containers falling into the sea after one cargo ship crashed into another vessel Monday.

Video footage of the incident has captured the Tolten, an 8,000 TEU Hapag-Lloyd ship, scraping past the Liberia-flagged Hamburg Bay, a 6,350 TEU vessel, knocking containers into the water at South Asia Port Terminal.

The Karachi port has handled more ships during July-December of the current fiscal year, with a total of 1,066 vessels called at the port, as against 957 ships handled in the same period last year.

Two berths of the dockyard were damaged in the crash and the containers went missing.

However, operations at the South Asia Port Terminal Limited were suspended after the collision. However, there was no damage to the terminal's cranes. According to The Frontier Post, port authorities said, "Approximately 55-60 containers from the ships fell into the sea", but thankfully, no one was injured.

An operation to pull the containers out of the sea was underway with the help of Pakistan Navy, with the operation likely to take two to three days to be completed.
