MV RMS Mulheim

According to the testimony of the Chief Officer of the MV RMS Mulheim, he was alone on the bridge when he accidentally caught his trouser leg on his chair, tripped and knocked himself out. He claims that when he recovered consciousness, all 4000 tonnes of ship and its cargo of waste plastic were seconds away from making intimate contact with Land’s End. The Marine Accident Investigation Branch discovered that none of the ship’s officers had plotted any course or chart positions for the ship’s voyage from Ireland to Germany, and certain basic safety procedures had not been followed.

You couldn’t make any of this stuff up…probably.
