Probably not a situation we'll encounter, but still jaw-dropping.

I still get a laugh. Everytime I see that video shot, of that tug getting hit by the anchor. Priceless!!!

Interesting since the operator of the tug went into the drink and the engine and prop were probably still engaged. On the positive side, he probably got substantial repairs or a new tug for the error.
