B.C. Ferry Sinks

I've just been watching the news and they're telling about a huge B.C ferry that sunk last night. The ferry hit a rock in the middle of the night in a place called Hartley Bay. Many people were in bed and had to get up and get dressed. Some of the passengers said that in they're wildest dreams they never thought the ship would sink. They said they thought that it was just grounded and it would later be pulled free. But it immediately started to list to one side and they had to go to the other side and get in life boats. And within an hour it just slipped endwise into the deep. The townspeople of Hartley Bay rallied hartily and took care of all the survivors.
