Shocking Video Shows Deadly Gunfight As Somali Pirates Try To Board Cargo Ship!
Unfortunately, the majority of the public only found out about the danger that the modern-day Somali Pirates present to the cargo and cruise ships, after watching the movie Captain Phillips. This movie featured the famous actor Tom Hanks as the heroic captain Richard Phillips. This, now famous American mariner and an author, was the man in charge when the Somali Pirates captured Merchant Vessel Maersk Alabama in April 2009, which spurred the Navy Seals into action.
After this hijacking of the huge vessel, many of the companies started hiring their own armed security guards, in order to make sure their vessels have a safe passage in the waters surrounding Somalia.
The video you are about to see is of a pirate attack that gets repelled by the well-armed security forces as the pirates come at the ship at extremely high speed trying to board the ship.
