Five Dead in Cruise Ship Accident

Five people are dead and another three injured when a lifeboat fell off a cruise ship and into the sea on Sunday, Spanish officials said. The ship was docked off the coast of Santa Cruz on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, apparently doing an emergency drill. Reportedly, all those on the lifeboat were crew members, but the nationality and sex of the dead was not known; the injured were all men, two aged 30, and another, a Greek national, is 32.
