HYANNISPORT – The following HN Video highlights last evening’s disaster scene where a Steamship Authority high-speed ferry crashed up onto the Hyannisport jetty.
The video shows passengers with lift jackets looking out windows shortly after the crash. It then shows police and fire boats responding to the scene.
There are also video and stills of a Coast Guard rescue diver being lowered onto deck.
At least 9 passengers were injured and needed to be hoisted off the ferry and flown to nearby Barnstable Munibiple Airport, where they were then taken by one of the awaiting ambulances to CCH.
There were 48 patients on board… at least 9 transported to CCH…
The video is loud at times due to the strong winds. The conditions were blustery and dangerous for all involved…
