DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Port operator DP World says 10 people were injured when one of the massive cranes at Dubai's largest port toppled over after a container ship hit a harbor wall.

The Dubai government-backed port operator said the accident happened last week, on Thursday, but that there were no fatalities.

The company also says a second crane was shifted off its rails in the incident. An investigation is ongoing.

Security-camera footage of the accident obtained by shipping industry publication Splash 24/7 shows trucks moving on the dock moments before the yellow crane comes crashing down.

Jebel Ali is DP World's flagship port and the largest cargo terminal in the Middle East.
