    The Lauching was in Santa Catarina , State onte South of Brazil, on Itajaí River. Detrit Shipyard
    The longitudinal launching suppose to be decreased by a cable which broke leaving the vessel to run free. I wasn’t there but by the dialog of the tug’s crew describing the accident we can reach this conclusion.
