    Sad to say, there were fatalities.

    Nissan confirms 3,500 vehicles are on board troubled ship

    Merchant vessels responding to distress calls have rescued 16 crew members from a large car carrier adrift in the Pacific Ocean, about 1,800 miles northwest of the Hawaiian island of Oahu, following a fire, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

    The Sincerity Ace, a Panamanian-flagged roll-on/roll-off vessel with a capacity of 5,200 vehicles, was headed to Hawaii and U.S. mainland ports with Nissans, and possibly other vehicles.

    Yeah, super sad to hear people lost their lives on this. A big thanks to the ships that helped rescue the crew.

    Fingers crossed the ecological fallout is minimal.
