Every so often there’s a story from somewhere in the world about a crowded ferry that overturns or collides or sinks, and drownings occur. I’ve always pictured in my head a large boat. My ferry experiences are from Mackinac, Staten Island, etc. This Reuters photo from Bangladesh is described this way:
An overcrowded ferry crosses the River Shitalakkhya in Bangladesh after another ferry was struck by a sand barge and capsized in Narayanganj Monday. Rescue workers are at right. About 30 of the 100 passengers on board were rescued after the collision on Sunday evening. Six were in the hospital, but no bodies have been recovered, police and rescue teams said.
I wonder if this is the typical ferry in many parts of the world. You think Bean Creek is difficult to pronounce, look at the river listed here.
