Ferry Sinkings

They can happen almost anywhere.

A Canadian Coast Guard vessel was still off B.C.’s north coast on Wednesday, scouring the choppy waters for fear there could yet be a missing passenger from a ferry that hit a rock and sank in the dead of night.

The difference appears to be how effective the emergency response is.

“Anytime you have a major incident and you have no one hurt or killed in this type of thing, I think you always think it’s a miracle,” David Hahn said. “You always think, thank God, and you (are) thankful for the crew. That’s what they’re trained to do. They’ve done their job once again.”
