Default Horrible accident on QM 2

Just happened today, something about a gangplank giving way with people on it, mostly workers and some of their family members, how sad....not a good way to start for a brand new not even finished ship

What a horrible beginning for an amazing ship. I feel for the families of those lost and the many injured parties.

That was awful. I've haven't heard all the details yet, other than several children were killed when the gangplank gave way while taking a tour of the ship while it was still under construction.

Saw footage on the late news tonight. What a horrible tragedy. Our condolences to those families involved.

It is very sad accident that happened on a great Ship. I hope the big ship will run smooth in the future.

I wonder if superstition will now creep into the picture. Any nasty things that happen during a ship's construction or launch are thought to be a very bad omen
