    Saw this this afternoon.  At first I thought it was the S.I. Ferry again and was about to call my cousin to see if he was there and if he was okay.  Luckily I then realized it wasn't.

     i hope everyone recover quickly.  Next time you are on ferry boats stay off the stairs. this is reason why they keep playing this message.
