On This Day

In the early morning hours of February 15, 1982, the oil rig Ocean Ranger sank in a winter storm off the coast of Newfoundland. All 84 crew members were killed. I will never forget this day.
The joint Federal-Provincial Royal Commission on the Ocean Ranger Marine Disaster found that the crew were not trained, the safety equipment was inadequate, there were no safety protocols for the supply ship, and that the platform itself had a number of flaws. - Wikipedia
