    At least 36 people died after two ferries collided off Lamma Island on Monday night, throwing more than 100 passengers into choppy waters and triggering a massive rescue effort.

    “Twenty eight were certified dead at the scene while eight others were certified dead upon arrival at hospitals,” the government said in a statement, raising the death toll by 11 from Monday night’s incident.

    Some 124 people on the Lamma IV, a vessel owned by Hongkong Electric, were thrown into waters near Yung Shue Wan when it was hit by a passenger ferry travelling from Central.

    5 children + 32 adults dead.
    Probably a marine navigation issue. Which vessel is crossing other vessel's path. Guess both crews were not keeping a lookout.
