With a dramatic wind change on a Wednesday afternoon, onlookers from the pier watched in horror as a sailboat drifted and crashed into the Aerial Lift Bridge in Duluth.

Audible gasps are heard as the wind takes the sailboat directly into the bridge. For a split second I thought the boat was going to flip. Luckily the sail snapped and the people on board seemed to be safe. There's no telling why the boat was so close to the Bridge, but you can see in the video the waves were ruthless.

Joaquin Figueroa caught the footage and it is making its rounds on social media, racking up over 100,000 views in less than 24 hours. I couldn't even imagine what would be going through my mind if I was on that boat. What a scary day for the people on board.
