Ferry slams into pier in Santo Domingo

Some major damage at the port of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic after a ferry struck a pier while mooring on Thursday.

The moment the ferry, named Kydon, slammed into the pier and several containers at the Don Diego terminal. Amazingly no injuries were reported.

According to reports, the ferry had just arrived in Santo Domingo and was already partially tied up with its forward loading ramp down when the incident occurred.

Another post online shows workers scrambling for safety as the vessel moved forward.

The ferry, operated by Ferries Del Caribe, provides service between San Juan, Puerto Rico and Santo Domingo. It had only recently resumed service on May 3 after the fire on the Caribbean Fantasy last August put the service on hold.
