Has anyone heard of this? I just saw it while doing research for THC documentary called Titanic's Final Moments. OMG I didn't hear a word about this in the news. I did read however there was not one American on board so maybe that is why it was not mentioned. I was thinking that it really doesn't matter how the Titanic sank 100 years ago but it seems like the captain of the Greek ship just kept going instead of calling for help! Some of the same mistakes made 100 years later?! I guess it is relevant after all. What do you guys think?
I had a little check and the last time that there was sinking of a greek ferry was in 2000. There were Americans on that one and it was worldwide news so I don't think that's the same ferry redredwino is referring to.
You would think that people would learn from the mistakes in history - just like the captain of the titanic had too much confidence in the construction of his ship, this most recent disaster could have been prevented if the captain had only made better decisions.
Did anyone see the documentary about the newest discovery made at the sinking sit of the titanic? It was just on the history channel, seeing it in its entirity was quite powerful...
Wow, that's a really awful thing to have happened... I guess the captain's been held accountable (as he seems to be among the dead), but I hope this will influence future captains to see that if their boat is on fire, it's probably not a good idea to shrug it off.
