An Italian cruise ship had just seconds to swerve dry land in a Venice dock after its captain appeared to lose control of the vessel during a heavy storm.

Embattled by poor visibility, lashing rain and strong gusts of wind, Costa Deliziosa narrowly missed slamming into the dock on Sunday.

But the 12-deck cruise ship was unable to avoid scraping a smaller boat moored on the banks of the Sette Martiri.

A terrifying video taken from a bar on the pier shows the vessel appearing to head straight for the shore. Crew members were sent running for their lives during the nail-biting incident.
