    That's almost too painful to watch. When doing marine work the rule is the higher the center of gravity the longer and wider the work barge needs to be to counter the weight of the high CG.

    Starboard bow side pilon was extended down, as the barge sunk deeper the pilon kept hitting bottom and pitched it over...the morons were doomed from the start.

    What difference would they have made, except to capsize the barge as well.

    I'm assuming they named it after the god, not the adventure.

    Does that model excavator have an exit on what became the topside of the cab? Because if it hit and sunk, the operator might not have escaped!

    Hope that guy didn't drown. With it landing on it's side like that, he could have been trapped.

    Update: No one was injured.
