This was so tragic that it was actually very funny.
Had they said that they were launching their new submarine, they then wouldn't need to scoop up such a big piece of disaster crap. If only they learn this from the Royal Malaysian Navy earlier.
At 17 million RMB for a ship that can't even float, one can't help but smell the reeks of cut corners and grey area accounting. A friend quipped that the officials should have been on board the ship when it launch so that they can all go down together.
Do watch the video. Very tragically funny. I hope nobody got hurt though.
I only have 2 words to describe this.
