Imagine wakening up and discovering a ship had ploughed into your home.

That is exactly what happened as a Vietnamese ship crashed into riverside houses this morning in Samut Prakan.

The ship, The Star 62, ran aground at Phra Pradaeng Pier, forcing residents to flee in fear for their lives but despite damage to the properties, no one was hurt in the incident.

One resident told how she heard a loud noise as she rested in her house. Upon investigation, she was horrified to see the ship heading towards her. She somehow managed to escape with seconds to spare.

It appears that a faulty steering system was to blame for the ship veering off course.

One to tell the grandchildren about in years to come.
