New News story...

Hot Springs Arkansas paper says...

A Hot Springs couple that was aboard a cruise ship that sunk earlier this month near Greece say a ship employee's kindness helped them survive.


Oteka Best was born without hip sockets, and has difficulty climbing and walking uphill. When the ship began to sink, cruise passengers were escaping by climbing down ropes.

The Bests worried that Oteka wouldn't be able to make it down the rope. But then, a cruise ship entertainer offered to carry Oteka down the ropes on his shoulders.
OK - passengers were climbing down ropes to escape the ship? What exactly happened here? I am continually surprised that there is so little known about this, especially pics and video. Wasn't anyone documenting this? I know I would have been.
