    Crew members on an ill-fated California dive boat that killed 34 people after catching fire off the coast of Santa Barbara last year said they weren’t given proper emergency procedure instructions, according to documents released by the National Transportation Safety Board Wednesday. While NTSB investigators said the cause of the fire is still undetermined, Ryan Sims, who had only worked on the boat for about three weeks before the fire, later told investigators he remembered “seeing sparks” when he plugged his cell phone in before going to bed. The five crew members sleeping on the top deck of the 75-foot, three-deck Conception were forced to leap from the boat into the water in the predawn hours of Labor Day 2019...
    Crew members of the Southern California dive boat that caught on fire and resulted in 34 deaths said they were not up to speed on emergency procedures when a fire broke out on the boat in 2019. Thirty-three passengers were on the boat during a Labor Day weekend scuba diving expedition in 2019 when a fire broke out and spread while passengers were sleeping. All the passengers and one crew member who were asleep below the deck were killed. Five other crew members barely escaped after unsuccessfully trying to save others. Investigators said the cause of the fire is still unknown, but plugged-in phones and other electronics might have been a possible ignition point, according to CBS News. Documents released...

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Thousands of people protested in Mauritius again Saturday over the government’s handling of an offshore oil spill that has become the Indian Ocean island nation’s worst environmental disaster in years.

    BANGKOK — Ralph Santillan, a merchant seaman from the Philippines, hasn’t had shore leave in half a year. It has been 18 months since he reported for duty on his ship, which hauls corn, barley and other commodities around the world.

    Facebook/U.S.C.G Cutter Kimball A Coast Guard crew member shoots at a shark that they say was swimming toward their shipmates who were taking a swim break after weeks at sea.
