This just isn't even right...

I saw this on the news the other night. :( :(

This is horrible.

It wasn't in the article, but apparently the pilot of the ferry went home after the accident and tried to committ suicide.

For some reason due to most likely computer ignorance  :blush: I was unable to get into the link you posted.

But I did want to ask a question.  Have the authorities stated just WHY the ferry HIT those pillars?  Was it an error on the pilot's part?  Did he black out for a brief moment?

I can't imagine the 'horror' that met those passengers.  And I also heard that one had not been found, (presumably dead).

I pray for the families of those who were killed.  And also for those who were on board who will most likely have 'nightmares' for a long time to come.

I don't think there's been an official report yet, but one theory was that the pilot hadn't taken enough of his medication and blacked out, causing the crash.

Thanks Te.

That is so sad.  The people on the Ferry put their trust in the Ferry AND the pilot.  And now, many have died for that trust.

And the pilot (who IF it was a medical problem) will always feel guilty, always feel at fault, always feel he Killed all those people because he didn't adhere to his medication.

And those who lost loved ones, will always feel that the pilot IF again it was a medical problem either should have been thinking of those he was ferrying by making sure his medication was taken appropriately, OR that those who HIRE the pilots shouldn't have hired him with a need for a specific medication that might either cause blackouts if not taken, OR could IF taken.

This is just plain sad.  And no one escapes without 'fear' or 'guilt' or 'anger'.

I still pray for all those involved.  What a horrid event.

Right here, in fact.

It's a very sad event, all right. :(
