    Law-suites to follow.
    The lawyers were probably lined up at the dock.

      Not everything is a lawsuit. If any of those bystanders was a lawyer, s/he was probably trying to help save lives. Now go slither back into your basket with the other deplorables.

        Wow, you Hillary supporters are a fine group. I guess you’re pretty proud to support a woman who takes millions of dollars from countries who treat women as property, execute gays and engage in slavery. Not to mention Hillary being careless with national secrets, trying to ruin the lives of women that her husband had affairs with and or raped. Not to mention the fact that Hillary is taking marching orders from George Soros, a Nazi collaborator as a child who was tasked with gathering up and selling the property that Jews were forced to leave behind when they were taken to places like Bergen Belsen and Auschwitz.

        Yeah, trump may be crass and unpolished but at least he doesn’t have the blood of many, many people on his hands.

    Awful this happened. I am happy to see that there are still some good samaritans left in this world that would help rather than just press record on their phones. Great rescue work!

    30 souls on a 35-footer ??? Stupidity. Over-loaded.

    Sad that no one died. Oh well, I am sure there will be more idiots on boats who will not be so lucky.
