On 2 June, cruise ship MS MSC Opera, operated by MSC Cruises, slammed uncontrollably into the San Basilio pier of Port of Venice. The giant cruise ship also hit the much smaller River Countess, a tourist boat.
On a video that appeared on social media, the cruise ship blasts its horn while spectators are running away from the scene. At least four people were injured, with two being taken to hospital.
