Dozens injured after ferry crashes into New York dock


A New York passenger ferry has hit a dock during the Manhattan rush hour, injuring as many as 50 people and tearing a hole in the vessel's bow.

More than a dozen passengers were seen lying on dockside stretchers under blankets. One person suffered a serious head injury.

The Seastreak hit the mooring as it docked about 08:45 (13:45 GMT), ripping some of its hull but remaining afloat.
