Near Miss Reignites Debate on the Panama Canal

A video that shows a POST-PANAMAX containership crowding a tugboat towards a closed lock gate on March 5 has reignited the debate over safety on the Panama Canal. Voices in the background express shock as the tug, which carries a five-person crew, comes perilously close to being crushed under the bow of the massive vessel. The video was posted anonymously to social media shortly after the incident took place.
