On the evening of the 2th of June 2004 the vessel « Sea Trust », a cargo ship for the transportation of cars with destination Beiruth, capsized in the harbour of Antwerp.
A fire started in a car which was placed on deck 2. The extreme production of smoke complicated the extinguish activities which resulted - in conjunction with the fire extinguishing water - eventually in the capsizing of the Sea Trust. Fortunately the ship's chimney touched the quay wall which prevented the "Sea Trust" from falling over complety. (quoted from gearthhacks.com forum)
