Tourist ferry in India kills 21
January 27 , 2014
A boat carrying tourists in the Andaman Sea capsized and killed 21 people.
The top administrator mentioned that 13 of them were rescued and another nine are reportedly missing. Initial updates suggested that all tourists were Indian and the vessel sank off the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
Investigations regarding the cause of sinking are ongoing. Accidents such as this one are common in India since ferries tend to be poorly built and often overcrowded.
