24 Dead in Ferry Sinking

24 Dead in Ferry Sinking

FOOTAGE has emerged of passengers clinging to the side of the Lestari Maju ferry as it sank off the coast of Selayar Island in Indonesia.

At least 24 people, including children, have been reported dead after the 48m-long vessel sank on Tuesday due to dangerous weather conditions.

The “overcrowded” ferry was carrying 139 passengers when it was smashed with strong winds, causing 13ft waves, reports local media.

There were also 48 vehicles including trucks on-board before waves plunged some of them into the water.

According to local media, the boat was overcrowded meaning there were not enough life jackets for all the passengers on board. Video below shows a number of people without lifejackets.
