Ferry collides with small boat despite warnings

If you're on the water in a relatively small boat you'd think you would be very wary of any larger vessels approaching.

This ferry was blowing its horn to warn a smaller boat that it was in its path - but the people in the tiny boat appear to just ignore the danger.

The hand-held camera footage shows the ferry heading rapidly towards the small boat before it connects with the left-hand side.

The smaller boat is immediately thrown off course, but just about manages to stay upright.

Luckily, no one was injured during the incident and the man driving the boat is later spotted coming out of his cabin.
