  1. 10 Die, Rest Are Rescued from Fiery Ferry

    They’ve been saved. Nearly all of the Norman Atlantic’s 478 passengers have been rescued after the car ferry caught fire off the coast of Greece while en route to Ancona, Italy. Ten people died, including at least one who tried escaping the burning ship. Rescue crews in helicopters and on nearby boats raced to help in gale-force winds and choppy waters. Some survivors were injured or suffered hypothermia, with a few requiring hospitalization, but the majority are back on dry land — safe and sound.
