    Lake Victoria ferry disaster

    A ferry on Lake Victoria capsized.

    44 confirmmed dead so far, but only 37 have been rescued, and there could have been between 400 and 500 on the boat.

    Rescue efforts to resume at daylight Friday, which I guess in Africa is right around now.

    I saw this on the BBC world news a few days ago,
    can't help but think what if this happened in Europe.

    Sure we would be hearing about it more.
