'Massive' Unmoored Pontoon Drifts in Hawkesbury River During Flooding in New South Wales

A “massive” pontoon broke free from its mooring on March 22 and drifted down the Hawkesbury River in Milsons Passage, Sydney, amid heavy flooding in New South Wales, Australia.

David Williams, who captured the video from his home in Milsons Passage, called the pontoon “massive” and estimated it to be 30 meters long. He told Storyful the pontoon floated toward the Hawkesbury River Bridge.
