NOW THIS IS
TRULY

UNBELIEVABLE!
Look
at each picture slowly and completely.

If
not for the photos no one would believe
this!!!

The towboat is
approaching the bridge with barges loaded with
coal.


This frame gives
you an idea of how fast the river is
running,obviously at or near flood stage.



Oh CRAP!! The
bridge didn't open and the boat can't stop.
Notice the tug has released the barges.
He
is backing as hard as possible to try and avoid
a collision with the bridge.


Can't back down
enough against the current. LOOK at the NUTTY
people standing on the BRIDGE!



Uh Oh! ! The
current has swung the boat around
sideways
.



The cook thinks
maybe something isn't quite right.


The boss is going
to be REAL mad!


Uh…. Boss? Do we
have flood insurance on this boat? The Tug is
going under the
bridge
!!



Uh….. Boss? You
ain't gonna believe what we just did! Tug came
out other side!!


She's low, but the
flag is still flying.



The wheelhouse
door and the door in the second deck are now
open.
Look close at the bottom right hand
side of the picture and you will see that the
bridge guardrail is underwater.





Look at the water
pouring out of the second deck doorway.

The working deck is still underwater,
but rising.


This company that
built the Tug should get the government contract
to build our battle ships.

(And cruisers like
the Titanic)


Notice anything
unusual? Look at the smoke coming from the
exhausts. It's still running!!!



Notice the prop
wash at the rear of the tug. The boat is upright
and back under power.
Just another day on
the river.
Do you suppose the captain had to
change his pants after all that?
