Violent Winds send Mediterranean Cruise Passengers into Sea
Palma del Mallorca, Spain - Cruise ship passengers have had to be rescued from the sea after stong winds caused a gangway to collapse on Thursday. An eighty year old Egyptian man is being treated in the hospital for head injuries.
The Italian-owned MSC Fantasia drifted away from the port wall in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, in gusts of up to 110km per hour. Passengers were making their way off the liner when a strong blast caused her to break her moorings.
