Boating accident with some positive elements

thanhniennews.com/society/boat-carrying-12-f…

It would seem that the authorities and some of the boats do try to look after their passengers.

In particular, the above article casts a spot light on two areas:

1. life jackets were on board

2. weather forecasts and predictions by authorities and boat crew are not very good. I assume it is a matter of balancing safety and passenger happiness and few tourists like to be transported all the way from Ha Noi only to find out their boat trip was cancelled.

1. Re: Boating accident with some positive elements

I assume this was a low cost cruise since the article mentions an 'open tour' company?

<<<1. life jackets were on board

Life vest are always on board, the problem is quality and age...

Even in Italy some boats were using chinese jackets that were not floating.... :-(
