Footage of an enormous vessel plunging into a harbor in Wisconsin shows dangerous debris flying right at the camera.

Posted on You Tube by Jason Bundoff, the impressive video shows the ship tumbling sideways into the water breaking off its sliders and creating a titanic-sized wave that engulfs the camera.

According to a Reddit user claiming to be Jason Bundoff’s friend, the photographer shot the video while an intern at the shipyard and survived the ordeal with scratches and bruises.

Others, he said, were not so lucky and one person allegedly broke his leg.
The startling video has created waves online where commentators familiar with the shipping industry have placed the vessel at Marinette shipyard in Wisconsin though the date is unknown.

On Gcaptain.com, users have also debated whether there was in fact anyone filming the launch at all.

One says: “Definately Marinette’s yard, the ship in the background is one of the Freedom Class LCS boats. Given the lack of other people in the shot I’d bet this was a remote camera.”

Certainly the amount of debris and water that comes flying at the camera looks as if it would cause more than scratches and bruises but according to his Redditor friend, Jason Bundoff is afraid to post anything more about the aftermath for privacy reasons.

What is clear is that the sliders that guide the boat into the water don’t extend as far as they should.

Though all launches create a dramatic wave, the ship usually tips back the right way after its initial immersion.

In Jason Bundoff’s video, clearly part of the dock equipment breaks off explaining the debris and validating at least the fact that it the launch was a failure.

Managers at Superior Discount Liquors are stumped as to why or how it happened, but they admit the shelves are 31 years old.

Peter Guske, an employee of Superior Discount Liquors told a local ABC station:

“It just kept rolling away from the wall from front to back, and I was in disbelief. I didn’t know what to do or say. The whole thing only took 10 seconds.”

Watch as a stunned store worker near the tumbling shelves breaks the land speed record as he scrambles to safety.

After the initial shock, store workers kept their cool and cleaned the blood-red mess up as quickly as possible with snow shovels, shop vacuums and floor scrubbers.

They didn’t even have to close the store.

The incredible wine incident was captured by two surveillance cameras in the store, in black and white and colour!

The images caught on camera were uploaded on Youtube on October 10 and has already had nearly 266,000 views.
