"Ferry Crash: Manslaughter Inquiry, Say The French"

CONDOR Ferries is being investigated for manslaughter and involuntary wounding following last month’s crash which killed a French father of four, it has been confirmed.
Philippe Lesaulnier (42) died shortly after the Condor Vitesse high-speed ferry collided with his whelk boat in thick fog.
His two crew members – aged 37 and 40 – escaped unharmed after being found clinging to the sinking remains of their vessel.
French police and maritime authorities immediately launched an inquiry, and yesterday confirmed for the first time which charges they are investigating.

Let us hope that Mr Lesaulnier's family and friends get some closure from this investigation.

Our condolences to family and friends on your very sad loss.
