Mogosoaia Sinks September 11, 1989

Romanian cruise ship Mogosoaia Sinks in Danube River 151 Passengers Die

Cruise ship passengers sailing aboard the Romanian cruise ship Mogosoaia on the Danube River ended up in the water when a Bulgarian ship, the Peter Karaminchev tugging a convoy of loaded barges rammed them during poor visibility, sinking their ship.

The 179 people aboard had almost no time to evacuate, with 151 remaining missing, according to Romania's official Agerpres press agency.

Reports said that most of the passengers aboard were from the West, such as the United Kingdom and USA.

There is no account of why the 13 crew members ALL survived, and yet the death toll passengers was so high.

The collision occurred upstream of Galati, a port city about 125 miles northeast of Bucharest, the Romanian capital.
