Commentary on MSC Cruise Ship Accident near Port Canaveral
This sort of thing isn't all that common, but it's indescribably tragic and obviously worth immediate investigations. Sometimes, things happen, and they simply can't be avoided. Other times, investigations can show a lack of safety procedures, a history of incidents, or other shortcomings the company involved failed to address. I certainly can't say what happened here, but I have little doubt there's a family out there that deserves some answers.
