It's really among the unlikeliest places for a tragedy.
I mean, there you are, on a large modern ship, tied up to a wharf on a river in the middle of a huge city, on a nice July day on your way to a pleasant lake cruise and a company picnic... Under those circumstances, who expects that they're about to become a victim of one of the worst maritime disasters in U.S. history, while still tied up at the dock, no less?
845 souls gone, just like that, on a summer day in the middle of a city, right out of nowhere. Gives me the creepin' willies, let me tell you.
