Feak Wave Hits Ferry

A 50ft wave smashed into one of the world’s largest ferries in the Bay of Biscay, terrifying passengers. The wave crashed into the boat on Sunday, smashing windows and injuring at least six people. Cabins more than 50ft above the waterline were flooded. Passengers described seeing a wall of water, followed by an explosion and then seeing people running around covered in blood after being hit by glass. The 1,150 passengers on board were offered a refund.
