  8. How in the hell is a boat with only 1 way in/out allowed to be produced? Are there not fire/safety codes for vessels like there is for buildings?

  9. Unintelligible was
    "Fully engulfed right now?"

  10. I've dove off that boat numerous times in the past when it was part of Sea Landings fleet in Santa Barbara. No one was locked down below, they don't do that, but there is only 1 way down and 1 way backup. I imagine the fire might have started in the stairway going down into the bunk area or in the engine room just behind the stairway, blocking anyway to get out.

  11. My goodness.. I cant even imagine sleeping and then waking up to a burning boat and locked inside, then burning alive… I hope they are all in heaven with the Lord <3

  14. That's messed up, well i hope no blacks or Hispanics was on that muthafucka

  15. Thank god all of the crew made it off.. why were all the passengers locked in from the outside ?? Huh ?

  16. 1st question: Did anyone onboard have any type of relationship with the Clinton crime family?

  17. I thought about a lot of horrible ways to die ! but this would possibly be quite the worst!. I'm so sorry for all that died and all that are suffering from this aftermath this is just terrible!.

  18. On a brighter note, wishing an amazing upcoming week to whoever is reading this 🙂

  19. R.I.P Everyone Who Died They Never Deserved to Die Especially in That Way 😭😭😭😭😭 And I Hope the Victims Family's And Friends Recover 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 And I Hope Everyone else is Ok 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  22. ?????????? Take a guess who they were……those not-crew people……..sad

  23. Who is this Roger fellow and why is he relevant to the situation? 🤷

  24. Bullshit… It was a set up

  25. Roger . I sure think that fire looks hot i bet it's hot roger is it hot? Cool ok hot fire! Woooo

  26. HAHAAAAA! Keep your asses at home…..and shit like this will not happen….or find some different interests other than throwing and attending parties.

  27. sad to hear the video start out with the dispatcher kinda frantic then by the end sounds like sorrow as he realizes nothing can be done to save those souls

  28. Nobody:
    Absolutely Nobody:
    Coast Guard: rOgEr

  29. Wow Captain and crew last to leave a boat or ship. Locking people was this full of passengers or what?
