It was National Day last year. And what was supposed to be a family outing with friends to see the fireworks display in Victoria Harbour became a nightmare for Lee Ming-sun as he tried to keep his family alive in one of Hong Kong's worst maritime disasters.
Thirty-nine people were killed when a boat owned by Hongkong Electric collided with a ferry off Lamma Island on October 1, 2012. The power firm was taking staff to see the National Day fireworks display in Victoria Harbour when disaster struck, plunging more than 100 people into the dark waters. It was the deadliest boat accident in Hong Kong in 40 years.
