In webcam footage, a cruise ship and a water taxi could be seen colliding. The water taxi sank almost immediately.
The six people, the captain and five passengers including a child, who were in the water taxi were able to be brought out of the water. They were all taken to hospital for observation.
Webcam footage shows the water taxi passed diagonally under the bridge and ended up just ahead of the bow of the cruise ship Spido, which was sailing in a straight line. The smaller boat was rammed and disappeared underwater.
Help is present en masse and maritime traffic has been stopped.
