  1. How does a fire block every inch of a boat – to force five members of the crew & captain to jump ship ? Wouldn't a fire start – and they would get fire extinguishers – and yell to wake people up? The fire to spread so quickly (blocking the stairs and escape hatch) while the captain has enough time to radio the coast guard — but not enough time to grab a fire extinguisher ? There is also suppose to be fire suppression on ship in the engine. —Something doesn't seem right.

  2. Seems like God was sleeping on the job.

  3. Terrible things happen !!!!

  4. If I am not mistaken, the sister ships Truth and vision are of the same design. Anyone remember if the conception had a way out of the bunks other than the stairway that lead to the kitchen?

  5. I would start with talking to the cook. the cooking area is just a few feet from the top of the steps that lead up from the bunks.

  6. find that fire gear look at it was it used?

  7. 33 gone….. that's nuts for 2019 something big here I think…..

  8. just a bunch of failures getting up and talking. i live in santa barbara.. and let me tell you.. it's a liberal place. liberalism is evil. it is a spiritual evil. sadly, probably most of the people who died went to hell. that's just a guess. like i said.. it's sad. their eyes were opened and they bowed to Jesus Christ to the glory of God the Father.. just like all these failures will do when they die. fight against God.. say homosexuality is normal and ok and good.. say abortion is a right and is not bad.. say whatever you want.. say good is evil and evil is good.. follow the god of this world.. satan.. sin.. be loved by the world because you are of the world.. be a part of the transgender community.. say if someone says homosexuality and transgenderism is wrong that they are full of hate.. continue to hate the bible and Christ the Lord and true christians.. have a police chief who is a woman.. have a district attorney who is a woman.. don't have a male mayor in the last 30 years.. stand against common sense laws and the plain meaning of the constitution.. do all of these things.. and much, much more.. and still.. God says.. through his holy servant jude.. behold has come Lord amidst holy myriads of his to execute judgment against all.. and to convict all the ungodly concerning all the works of ungodliness of them which they have done in an ungodly way.. and concerning all the harsh that have spoken against him sinners ungodly.

  13. What I have a hard time with: Aside from the folks whom choose to compare this to people shooting each other…Is the ads when one is trying to get updates on the victims.

  14. Death by fire/drowning?!!!! How terrifying 😞

  15. profane is a good energy but deadly …. why dive boat need that…microwave is very safe…profane just exploded that cause rapid fire, no way in or out …if i were one of that crew that, I'll jump

    Julio : Que Lastima ! Me forgot to light the burner 😨
    Crew#4 Oh Shiiiiiiit !!!
    Boom 😢

  21. I couldn't even begin to imagine what its like to be a recovery diver. Ugh.

  22. If anyone has any news of the people on board could you post please. I’m out of the country and one of my friends was on that diving trip. The only thing I can do at the moment is stay posted so please! If anyone get send me in the right direction, I will be very great full

  23. So who was on the boat? Epstein associate? Clinton confidant? Someone was.

  24. Dive boat Captains take great care of passengers & their job seriously in my experience. I dated a Capt. In the 80’s & went on at least 20 trips to San Nic,San Miguel & Santa Cruz out of Ventura Harbor. Safety is #1 priority so ppl asking stupid questions should just stop. This was a terrible accident. It could very well be that the engine while mooring caught fire being that they were so close to shore, most likely they had arrived at their destination. With crew awake at 3:30 am ,most likely with that many guests,were preparing breakfast already for an early dive,which there could have been a fire in the galley. You move at night between islands & when you wake you’re there. Those ppl were fast asleep,packed in those racks & below deck is very tight. If the fire was fuel by tanks & explosions happened? I’m sad to say there is no chance anyone below deck will have survived. Journalists asking about “criminal acts” should STFU.
    Owners must be devastated & those kind of questions & accusations are asinine.

  25. Political figures need their names read prior to tragedies, how sad.

  26. In trying times like these, we must all submit to the master of the universe, DONALD TRUMP!!!!! At the end of time, DONALD TRUMP will make all things right again!!! He will end the 2nd law of thermodynamic and all suffering!!!!!
    WE MUST ALL BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP OUR ONE AND ONLY SAVIOR, DONALD TRUMP!!!!!!!! HE WILL BRING BACK ALL THOSE WHO WERE LOST!!!!!!

  27. Wow let’s ban boats! More casualties than the shooting in Midland Texas. Boats kill people.

  28. Thinking of 1967 Apollo fire killing 3 (Chaffee,White,Grissom)…pure oxygen from scuba tanks very flamable….no chance to escape. Carelessness….or…..
