From what I understand, they lit a fire on the deck for some reason.  Sad.

I wanted to see how big the boat was. Probably overloaded like those Cuban refugee rafts.

Apparently they were tourists:

According to Italian media reports, the vessel sank near Rabbit Beach, also known as Rabbit Island, which was recently voted one of the best beaches in the world by Trip Advisor.

Finally, some good news to take my mind off our domestic gridlock.

When I looked where the island was where this happened, I found quite close to Libya. A lot farther from Italy than Malta.

That's just code for "Do our job for us. We won't pay you, but who cares?"

I'm more interested in the tags up the top there.

News: yep.
Italy: sure.
Lampedusa: Why not? That's where it happened.
Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency: what?

Why does the new Italian immigrant navy have glass bottom boats? To see the old Italian immigrant navy.

Order of events from BBC several hours ago.

1) motor quits
2) starts taking on water
3) fire set as a crude sos
4) fire gets out of control
5) occupants congregate on one side of boat
6) boat tips

If this boat had communication capability, anyone who knew how to use it and failed to do so deserves to get shot with a flare gun as many times as it takes to make the kill.

Well of course it isn't a repeat, only 32 died last year. Silly goose,  Subs.

I feel like this is a repeat from 200 years ago. Who still dies from shipwrecks? And how much gold from the New World went down with them?

Even since Roman times, Italians have been lousy with ships.

Yeah I was thinking this sounded like a repeat from the First Punic War.

(Which to be fair, Rome did win, despite all the shipwrecks.)

But, to be fair, it gave way to the Second Punic Wars (The Punic-ing), which were epic.

Pubic wars usually are epic.
