Photos: Hong Kong Boat Accident , 36 Dead

At least 36 people were killed on a boat and ferry accident in Hong Kong last night.

Nine others were seriously or critically injured.

More than 100 people were rescued and sent to hospitals.

All the victims were the boat’s passengers.

They were on an evening cruise to watch fireworks display for the China’s National Day and the Mid Autumn Festival celebration.

The incident happen near Lamma Island, southwest of Hong Kong.

It was reported that the boat sank very fast after the accident.

There are possibility that some people are still missing or still in the boat. 

Local news reported that the boat was hit by a ferry operated by the Hong Kong and Kowloon Ferry company on a regularly scheduled service.

This is a disaster.

I am very sad and sorry for the victims, their families and friends.
