GCaptain- 40 year old ship breaks in two

If you haven't seen it, GCaptain has video of a ship that broke in two while at anchor in relatively calm waters.
That would be a surprise to the bridge watch! No longer anchored at their end. Great video of the stern section on the beach with the radar still turning.
