I stumbled upon this video clip of a ferry being loaded in Greece. The poster and commenters got a chuckle out of it. Take a look.
It reminded me of what happened to a friend a few years ago while boarding a ferry in Greece. She lost part of her foot. It got caught under that loading ramp when the boat lurched just as she was trying to jump on. Very painful, lots of medical treatment, and long period of rehabilitation to be able to walk again. Not so funny.
