(NEW YORK) — At least 57 people were injured — one critically — when a commuter ferry had a hard docking pulling into a New York City pier Wednesday morning.
The Seastreak ferry had 343 passengers and five crew members on board when it pulled into Pier 11 in Lower Manhattan just before 9 a.m. It was coming from Conner’s Pier in Highlands, N.J.
Passengers described a “tremendous impact” when the ferry docked. The injured were taken out on stretchers and wheelchairs and covered in blankets.
The person in critical condition was taken into surgery for a head injury.
The National Transportation Safety Board is launching a team to investigate the incident.
