Hello everybody,

12 people were killed today when a gangway of Cunard Line's "QM2", currently under construction in St. Nazeire, France, collapsed. The victims were mostly relatives - including children - of ship yard workers who had been invited to visit the new liner.

This is a true tragedy!

Best regards,

Raoul Fiebig

Raoul, that is very sad to hear. I understand there were also over 35 people injured, some severely.

Raoul and Tom,
How sad that what was meant to be a celebration could turn so horribly wrong. It makes one realize how important it is to value each day as a gift. My condolences and prayers go out to the families affected by this tragedy.
Nancy
