At least 36 people are dead and dozens wounded after a ferry carrying more than 120 partygoers on a company outing crashed with another boat just south of Hong Kong. One of the ferries was being used by Hong Kong Electric, where employees were going to watch fireworks in the city's Victoria Harbor to celebrate China's National Day. The other ferry was returning with passengers from Lamma Island. Survivors said that within 10 minutes of the crash, the ship had sunk.
