Watch: Bulk Carrier Crashes Into Historic Mansion In Istanbul’s Bosphorus

A Maltese-flagged bulk carrier vessel named Vitaspirit crashed into a historic mansion on the Istanbul’s Bosporus strait.

According to Turkey’s official news agency, on 7th April, Saturday, the cargo ship had a malfunction, which disabled its rudder and caused it to lose control in the busy waterway.

The mansion was built in the 18th century and has been used to host weddings and concerts, according to the mansion’s website. No injuries or environmental threats have been reported from the accident.

The vessel was later moored in the Marmara Sea for investigation. The owners of the mansion are demanding proper prosecution against those in charge of maritime traffic.
