ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A high-speed ferry from Hong Kong hit a breakwater as it was approaching Asia's gambling hub Macau on Friday (June 13), local media reported. Footage from Hong Kong television ATV showed the red ferry mounted on the breakwater after the accident. The ferry was carrying 220 passengers at that time, it reported. About 70 people suffered from mostly light injuries. An investigation is underway, but local media said the accident took place during high tides and the breakwater was not visible at the hour of the crash. Several accidents involving ferries have been reported in the last few years in Hong Kong, one of the world's busiest shipping lanes.
