    That seemingly happened offshore Vietnam when geotechnical drilling vessel MV DP2 Geoaltus for Talisman Vietnam. It was mainly due to malfunction of drawer unable to hold the top drive, and luckily no one was under it during that time. Learning from this lesson, many of South East Asian geotechnical soil investigation vessels have started to install preventive measures such as stoppers.
