Containers fall off ship in Pudong, blocking traffic

MORE than 20 containers fell into the Yangtze River when they were being loaded onto a freighter in the Pudong International Container Terminal in Shanghai this morning. Improper distribution of weight was to blame for the accident and choppy water also caused the ship to tip over, reported. Some containers went down into the water while others floated on the river, threatening traffic. Port authorities have closed the area to navigation and are retrieving the fallen containers. Investigation into the cause is ongoing.
