Noah's Ark Replica Crashes In The Waters Near Norway

A watery collision involving a less than typical boat occurred near Oslo, Norway on Friday.

Noah's Ark ran into a ship belonging to the Norwegian Coast Guard, reports RT.

According to the Washington Post, the accident occurred as the tugboat hauling the ark replica went off course.

When the coast guard vessel was struck by the 230-foot-long wooden watercraft, its crane came loose and collapsed.

Noah's Ark took a hit and sustained a large hole in its side as a result, notes ABC News.

Sinking isn't a concern at this time, as the damage is above the portion submerged in water.

However, Dutch carpenter Johan Huibers, creator of the Bible-themed ship, is worried about how he is going to swing the repairs.

The ark is one of two replicas built by the owner, and serves as a museum highlighting Noah's journey.

According to the New York Times, no one was injured in the Friday's collision.
