Wave kills passenger on cruise ship

  • A "freak wave" in the English Channel killed an 85-year-old passenger after it smashed into a cruise ship. 

    Several other passengers were injured by the wave, which witnesses say stuck early afternoon. Most of the injuries were due to shattered windows. 

    Reports suggest that the vessel was on its way back from a 42-day-long journey to the Azores. A young boy also died in a ship's pool earlier this month in the US.
