06 Apr “The Clock Is Ticking”: Inside the Worst U.S. Maritime Disaster in Decades
Ужасно (в прекия и преносния смисъл) интересна история, 100% истинска. Готова за филм и напълно реална. Натиск за печалби и ниски разходи и последствията им за 34 удавници. В реално вече, чрез собствените им думи на запис.
45 минути четене, но си струват, защото историята е по-интересна от книга.
“Disasters at sea do not get the public attention that aviation accidents do, in part because the sea swallows the evidence. It has been reported that a major merchant ship goes down somewhere in the world every two or three days; most are ships sailing under flags of convenience, with underpaid crews and poor safety records. The El Faro tragedy attracted immediate attention for several reasons. El Faro was a U.S.-flagged ship with a respected captain—and it should have been able to avoid the hurricane. Why didn’t it? Add to that mystery this simple fact: the sinking of El Faro was the worst U.S. maritime disaster in three decades.”
