Default Norwegian cruise ship listing badly

The Hurtigruten Nordlys - in Alesund after an engine blast onboard.

She is listing badly (picture from Getty Images)

If she goes much further she "could" lose her balance and tip over sideways, in which case there is a good chance she could sink if all the hatches are not tight enough to keep out seawater under pressure.

Paul, there were (at least) two people from Arkansas on this ship. They were interviewed today and they were not able to bring anything off the ship with them including their passports. I find this strange, as during the usual "Drill", we're told to bring all our important papers and meds with us.

This must have happened very quickly.

Scary! I think I saw that the ship was being held upright by a crane, but I could be wrong.

Fern, I was watching GMA this am, and I too thought I remembered a crane holding her up..I went to abc news, to find a shot of the ship, and found this video. The 2 who perished were crew members
