This video of sailors making a disastrous attempt to drop anchor dates back at least to November, but it's pretty fair to say that this was probably one of the single worst workdays anyone on the planet has had in the past few months that didn't involve any actual tragedies. Although it's not clear what this large ship was carrying, it does have a really heavy anchor attached to a gigantic chain and winch. Viewers are claiming the panicked shouting indicates it's a Greek ship—which is certainly possible since Greece has the 8th-largest merchant fleet in the world.
