This is no video game, but a real footage of Dutch Marines rescuing a German Cargo Ship from Somali pirates. This amazing video clip was captured using a helmet camera of one of the marines. Though the tape might seem like a plot straight out of a video game or a James Bond movie, we assure you that it’s hundred percent real.
For those who don’t know about this mission – M/S Taipan, a German container vessel, was high jacked by 10 Somali pirates in April, 2010 some 560 miles off the coast of Somalia. The Dutch frigate Tromp was radioed and called to the scene. What followed was a Hollywood movie like sequence: The marines detained 10 Somali pirates on board the ship when negotiations with the pirates failed. To know more about the incident read here.
