Press Release
December 21, 2017


The first order of the day is the immediate rescue of the passengers from the capsized ship.

Rescue teams with adequate equipment should be deployed at once to ensure that all lives are saved.

Although reports said that the ship was not overloaded, authorities should determine whether the cause of the mishap was an accident or a preventable man-made disaster. A thorough investigation should thus be conducted.

We reiterate our push for the creation of the National Transportation Safety Board, which will ensure that better safety standards are in place to prevent disasters from happening.

As an investigative body composed of experts, the NTSB can conduct independent probes to piece together more reliable reports with recommendations to prevent future civil and public transportation mishaps.
