A Scottish man who jumped for his life with other tourists off a burning cruise ship in Vietnam — in an incident caught on video — said Sunday the scene was “just chaos.”
More than 40 tourists and crew members plunged into the waters of Ha Long Bay on Friday to escape the growing inferno on the docked wooden Aphrodite Cruise ship, the New Zealand Herald reported.
“The crew did their best but they were all very young and obviously overwhelmed by the circumstances,” Michael Doherty told the newspaper. “The passengers were guided to the sun deck of the ship and thereafter given no direction or support. It definitely felt as if it was just chaos.”
In a statement posted to Facebook, Aphrodite Cruises said the incident “could be due to careless visitors and staff who smoke and ignore fire prevention.”
