Only 12 people survived.The incident was “an extraordinarily serious disaster” caused by strong winds and heavy rain resulting from a squall line accompanied by a downburst, according to the official report.The owner of the Eastern Star, Chongqing Eastern Shipping Corp., had taken the liberty to modify the ballast tanks without requesting an official inspection afterward, according to the official report.The firm also failed to give proper training to its crew on how to respond to inclement weather conditions, the report said.The investigation team said Captain Zhang Shunwen and his chief mates had “insufficient knowledge” about extreme weather and possible dangers, and had “responded inadequately.”The report proposed that the captains certification be revoked and that the judiciary decide whether he had committed a crime.Other flaws by the firm included insufficient checks on cabin facilities and lax monitoring over the ships condition.Local authorities, including ports and maritime safety administrations, have been accused of inadequate ship examination and lax water transport permit issuance, according to the report.(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Yuan Can,Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 8997605;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingChina cruise ship tragedy caused by freak weather: official probeLanding ship flotilla conducts replenishment-at-sea drillLarge-tonnage comprehensive supply ship of the PLA put into serviceNew bauxite transport channel opened between China and AfricaWorld’s largest ore carrier docks in Bohai BayWe RecommendAre these the world’s scariest landing strips?
