I have not been watching TV for a week now. I’ve listen to the radio, but for some reason not at the right time. I totally missed this mishap.
Last Wednesday the Hong Kong-based ship Cosco Busan was passing under the Bay Bridge when the Captain, John Cota radioed in that his vessel had just “touched: the Bay Bridge.
In actuality that so call touch caused a gash in the fuel tank of his vessels that unleashed 58,000 gallons of thick toxic fuel oil. That was some “touch.”
Now comes the clean up and saving of hundreds of sea animals.
I guess that story is not as big as the on going Brittney Spears saga, because that is all I hear about.
