*The lifts after the 5th panel are photoshopped. The large marines cranes didn't come to save them either, they are added for comedic effect.
As you can see, a crane was hired to pick a car up out of the water. It didn't have the capacity and fell in too. Then another crane truck had to come to lift both the crane and the car from the water. It would have been interesting to see the series of events that led to bringing in Heerema's Thialf to lift up the crane trucks, and the Versabar VB 10,000's Claw to pick up the sunken Thialf.
