The cargo ship has been lying on its side near the port of Brunswick (Georgia, USA) since September 2019. There are more than 4,000 Kia and Hyundai cars inside. The ship is to be disposed of along with the vehicles.

At the time, the ship was wrecked just 23 minutes after leaving the port. For unknown reasons, the ship tipped over on its side. Probably, details of the incident will soon be known.

More than 4,000 Hyundai and Kia models will be destroyed along with the cargo ship. Vehicles cannot be restored – many of them are probably badly damaged, and some of them have been under water for almost a year.

The operation to cut a cargo ship into eight parts is potentially dangerous – the ship's fuel tanks are full, so there is a high probability of fire and even explosion. Over the past 10 months, the entire team was, of course, evacuated. But the operation must still be performed in the safest possible way.
