FINAL REPORT RELEASED REGARDING SINKING OF LADY D
The Coast Guard has reported that it has released its final report of the sinking of the passenger vessel the LADY D. The LADY D capsized in March, 2004, killing five people in the Patapsco River in Baltimore. The LADY D was a small pontoon water vessel.
The Coast Guard cites the master’s decision to depart the dock in an approaching visible squall line. The Coast Guard also states that the vessel capsized as a combination of several factors which created an overturning motion which the vessel could not recover.
