Ferry smashes in to concrete wall

Ferry smashes in to concrete wall

Spanish authorities say 13 passengers aboard a ferry were injured when the boat slammed into a sea wall at a port on the Canary Islands.

Images show the ferry hitting the breakwater head-on, sending chunks of the concrete wall tumbling down onto a service road.

The spokesman for Naviera Armas, the company that owns the ferry, says that a “loss of electrical power” caused the accident as the boat was leaving the Puerta de la Luz on the island of Gran Canaria on Friday night.
