The report in german confirmed that the crane collapsed due to the wind and when falling down he missed the vessel and a nearby building

The ship looks brutal from this angle (and not that she looks much more elegant from the other angles, too...) :)

Thanks for sharing!

The ship knocked down the crane..

The only casualty seems to be the dockyard crane and not the ship, doesn't seem that the ship was damaged as the crane toppled over on the quay.

Comes to my mind, from 35 years experience of working at a shiprepair yard, that when strong winds are blowing the shore cranes are stopped, and operating with the cranes is suspended (the crane driver must leave the crane cabin!) and moreover, the crane is set in a secure and stand-by position (at the shiprepair yard where I worked the maximum permitted force of the wind allowing cranes' operations was 45 km/hour, cca 25 knots), therefore, and presumably, the ill-fated crane seen on this photograph "was not working over the ship" when it was overturned/blown over by the force of the storm xayier...
Eventual, however very seldom, event of overturning of a shore crane is subject to indeed very severe weather conditions (extreme wind force) and therefore is considered as a case of "force majoure".

PS: The hoses that can be seen on this photograph (at Full Screen>Original Size) hanging overboard the ship are the energetic supply hoses (e.g. compressed air) necessary for the repair works that are carried out on board the vessel at the shiprepair yard/shipyard (provision of these supplies on board the ship is called generally by the shipyards "General services").
Those hoses are, in any case, not to be understood as "crane wire ropes".
