Videos Show Hospital Ship Incident That Led to 19 People Going Overboard as Questions Swirl


Recommended Posts

Videos have surfaced of an incident in Haiti aboard the Navy's hospital ship USNS Comfort that led to 19 people falling into the water and injuries to two sailors Monday evening.

The two clips, posted to a Navy-themed Instagram account, appear to show a boat full of people slowly lifted from the water by a Crane on the Comfort before tipping over while dangling in the air. Both videos show several people falling into the water below.

The videos not only shed light on what happened but also contradict prior Navy claims of rough seas, raising questions about the choice to use a crane to bring people aboard.
