An elevated tram ran past the end of its tracks in the Dutch city of Rotterdam, but instead of plunging 10 metres to the ground, it came to rest delicately on top of a statue of a whale’s tail.
- The statue is coincidentally called Saved by a Whale’s Tale
- The driver was uninjured and there were no passengers on the train when it crashed
- The architect who designed the sculpture was surprised it was so strong
The conductor emerged shocked but unharmed and there were no passengers on board.
