Luckily nobody was killed in this accident, though 6 sailors were injured... In other words how does it look like when a tube bursts.

Unfortunately I'm not aware of the exact date and location at the moment, but I have to look through the old Orizzonte Mare issues. It doesn't appear in Bagnasco's book for sure, I've already check it out.
