The story was on Dateline NBC last night. First I ever heard of this. Unbelievable that the captain and crew abandoned ship!! Were criminal charges ever brought against them??
Thanks Anonymous, I went onto their website but unfortunately did not find too much information, however did find a really good account of the Hudson rescue.
if you go to dateline.nbc.com and click on "close calls" on the home page, you can watch the sepment that was aired last night. I agree with Anonymous, the captain and crew should be punished. I was amazed when they said everyone made it off the ship. You were part of a true miracle!
I saw about it on a show called "Shockwave" on the History channel. I can't believe the captain and crew abandoned ship!
I also saw it on a show called "Shocking Videos" on American TV (believe its on the Spike channel). It showed what happened, the efforts of Moss Hills and the other entertainers to help rescue all the passengers, and the incompetence of the captain. It shows him trying to justify what he did by saying 'when I say abandon ship, that means everyone'.
I'm late to the party (Aug. 2009) but found your site through a google search. Did the captain and crew of the Oceanos get punished for abandoning their passengers? Were there lawsuits?
