Watch: Huge Container Ship ‘Hansa Constitution’ Runs Aground In Hong Kong

A 193-metre-long container ship ‘Hansa Constitution’ sailing under German flag ran aground on 6th April afternoon by the University of Hong Kong sports ground in Pok Fu Lam.

According to residents in the neighborhood, the captain of the ship dropped the anchor to slow down the vessel, as it came to a halt just a few feet away from the promenade, which is popular with joggers.

The ship was on its way to Shenzhen when it is believed to have been blown off course by monsoon winds after engine failure.
