Hong Kong police arrested two captains and five crew members on Tuesday in connection with a ferry crash that left 38 people dead and more than 100 injured on Monday. The accident, which occurred after a boat chartered by the Hong Kong Electric Co. for an employee celebration collided with a ferry, is the worst maritime disaster in the territory in four decades. All the fatalities appeared to be from the chartered boat, while the ferry was able to sail back to port. The electric company's boat rapidly sank, and photos from the scene showed a Titanic-like image of just the vessel's bow sticking up vertically from the water.
