A yacht met an unfortunate fate in the Mediterranean Sea, and the video is jarring.
A massive 131-foot yacht, known as My Saga, sunk off the coast of Italy in the Ionian Sea, according to NBC News, and I can guarantee the video will be the craziest thing you see all day.
Newsweek reported a call went out August 19 that the yacht was taking on water through the stern and a massive rescue operation was launched.
On August 20, the ship officially went down, but the Italian and Romanian coast guards successfully launched a rescue operation that rescued all nine passengers.
It’s unclear at this time what caused the sinking.
While it’s not been confirmed at this time, there have been some reports the yacht belonged to Russian oligarch Gennady Ayvazyan.
Whether it does or not, we do for sure know it now rests in the water forever.
Fortunately, the authorities were able to launch a successful operation and no lives were lost. In terms of boating videos, there’s no question this is one of the craziest we’ve seen hit the web in a very long time. It’s straight out of “Wolf of Wall Street.”
