Ferry drama in NZ seas

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A PAS­SEN­GER was washed over­board when a com­muter ferry got into dif­fi­culty on Welling­ton Har­bour in high winds and choppy seas. School stu­dents, in­clud­ing some dis­placed by the re­cent Christchurch earth­quake, were on the ferry. The East-West ferry was re­ported to have just dropped off the school­boys at Seatoun wharf yes­ter­day morn­ing, when it hit trou­ble in Worser Bay. Pas­sen­gers were taken off in an in­flat­able res­cue boat.
