Video footage shot from a Turkish dock shows an Egyptian-controlled multipurpose developing a severe list in a matter of seconds.

The 4,300-dwt Togo-flagged ship Sea Eagle (built 1984) capsized and later settled on the bottom at Iskenderun on 17 September.

The film gives no clue as to the cause of the sudden accident.

Dockers are seen watching the vessel as a crane lifts a Lynn container from the deck.
