A ship almost tips over during the launching ceremony before uprighting itself. According to the description provided with the video, the incident took place at the Damen Shipyard in Romania.
Though a little bit of movement is normal during such side launching of ships, this specific video features a ship which almost tilts fully on one side and then uprights itself. We wonder if this is a normal thing or not!
