H.K. to Charge Ferry Crash Captains With Manslaughter, SCMP Says

April 10, 2013

The captains of the two vessels that collided off Lamma island last October are expected to be charged with manslaughter today, the South China Morning Post said, without saying where it got the information.

The five crew members from the two boats aren’t expected to be charged, the report said.

Hong Kong in December began an inquiry into the deadly ferry crash that killed 39 people, the worst maritime disaster in four decades.
