OT the Staten Island Ferry has crashed

As if New York hasn't had enough problems, now the Staten Island Ferry has crashed on the end of a pier at 3:20 EDT. It caught what appears to be the front corner and tore a pretty good gash down the side above water level. It is preliminarily being blamed on high winds and choppy waters. Deaths are reported from 5 by Fox News to over a dozen by UP. Lot of injuries with some people trapped under debris loosing limbs. Some people jumped ship into the water when it happened. There is a report that the captain became distraught, went home and attempted suicide by slitting his wrists and shooting himself several times with a BB gun.

I'd provide an internet news story link, but right now they are all still just speculative and I don't know if any have an accurate story.

heard the story on CNBC - Giulani left the game to go to the sight. Very sad for those involved.
