By Accidents

Rescue operation continued to search Indonesian waters Friday for people who were reported for missing after a Passenger ferry collided with the LPG tanker Norgas Cathinka and sank, with officials fearing some were trapped in cars on the wrecked ship.
At least 8 people have died in Wednesday’s incident, most probably drowning after jumping into the sea without life jackets, told Heru Purwanto, an official at Bakauheni port on southern Sumatra.
More than 210 passengers and crew members were saved in the hours after the accident, but an unknown number are feared missing.
The passenger ferry vessel manifest listed 213 passengers and crew members and 78 vehicles on the ferry vessel, but manifests are often unreliable in Indonesia because tickets are sold on the board to passengers who are never registered.
The rescue operation for survivors after the accident was continuing after many family members came forward to say the names of missing loved ones.
Some of the passengers were believed to be inside vehicles parked on the ferry ship when it sank, told Budi Harto, who heads the local disaster management agency in Lampung province. He stated that divers were facing a difficult task due to the position of the wreck that was in waters as deep as 90 metres (295 feet).
The other vessel Norgas Cathinka in the accident was not seriously damaged. Singapore-based Norgas Carriers Pte. Ltd. said in a statement that the propylene chemical the vessel was carrying didn't leak and there was no pollution caused by the accident.
