On August 9, 2018, about 2030 local time, the main boom on the crane barge Atlantic Giant II failed while moving a section of a vessel being dismantled in the Brownsville Ship Channel in Brownsville, Texas. The load and crane boom subsequently fell into the harbor. Two shipyard employees working on the barge were injured, as well as a third on board an assisting tugboat. No pollution was reported. Damage to the barge and crane amounted to an estimated $6.4 million.
