Italian media have reported 110 passengers were on board the river boat.

In another video, terrified passengers can be heard shouting 'hold on' as the luxury cruise boat crashes into the river boat and then the pier.

The cruise ship's owner, MSC Cruises, has said the ship suffered a mechanical problem, and there are reports a steel cable connected to a tugboat snapped.
