    Hong Kong boat crash off Lamma Island

    Two passenger boats have collided

    This early report says:

    One of the boats was carrying more than 120 people to a fireworks display when it half-sank following Monday night's collision near Lamma Island.

    Twenty-eight people were pronounced dead at the scene. About 100 others have been taken to hospital, eight of whom were later said to have died.

    Am I incorrect, but I think I saw a white-and-blue "diving-flag" on the partially sunken vessel?

    Were they in the process of having people in the water/divers?

    It might as well have been me mixing up my memory with something else...
