Tanker collapse

What happens when a tanker is not vented properly. http://www.break.com/index/tanker-implodes.html
As far as I know, the tank was steam cleaned and closed up without
letting the tank cool down first. Take a clean can, heat a little water in it and then cap it. The can will collapse as it cools.
