A line of whitewater is seen as the tow line from a tug boat to the grounded Japanese fishing trawler, Eihatsu Maru, snaps in an attempt to pull it off the exclusive Clifton beach in Cape Town, South Africa. A second attempt to tow the vessel out to sea failed when the tow line snapped again. The 164-foot Japanese fishing trawler ran aground close to the shore in the fog on Saturday with 28 Taiwanese crew and a dog on board. The vessel grounded less than 50 yards from the upmarket Clifton Beach with million-dollar apartments overlooking the striken vessel at the foot of the iconic world heritage site, Table Mountain.
