Albanian Seamen Die in Ferry Recovery

On Tuesday, two Albanian seamen died while trying to help those on the Italian ferry. These two men were hit by cables that were being used to save passengers on the ferry. A fire broke out on the ferry for unknown reasons and the passengers had to be rescued. These Albanian men were part of the rescue team that was sent out to help out the ferry and all of the passengers aboard.

There are reports that so far ten people have died in the ferry fire and there have been about 400 saved. There are people that are still missing in the sea however. Rescue boats and helicopters have been working around the clock since the fire broke out on Tuesday to help save those who are still in the ocean or aboard the ferry.

The Albanians who were killed during the rescue were hit by broken cables that were part of the rescue plan. The men were trying to do their best in order to save those aboard the ferry. This one just one of the many difficulties that rescue workers have had during this operation. Many of the members of the Italian coast guard have had a hard time getting through the wreckage to help passengers that are still on board or near the ferry.

Many passengers panicked when news of the fire spread. In situations like this, they were reminded to try to stay as calm as possible. The passengers all fled to the top of the ferry when the fire was spreading down below. They were surprised to find freezing rain and ice greeted them. There was also a storm in the sea headed directly toward the ferry. All looked bleak for those aboard the ferry.

The passengers said that the scene was crazy. There were life boats scattered in the ocean and helicopters dropping down baskets in order to get everyone off of the boat as quickly as possible The Italian coast guard is still currently trying to find those who are missing. Many families are still trying to find their loved ones and hope that they are now amongst the wreckage in the sea.
