Passengers and crew made a dramatic escape from a capsizing Indonesian ferry Monday in Indonesia. With the ferry listing dangerously, people can be seen climbing down the side of the ship — some even appear to be rappelling — before jumping into the water in the Port of Tanjung Perak in East Java. Amazingly, there were no casualties. The ferry became almost fully submerged, below, but the harbor master reported that all 175 passengers and crew successfully evacuated the ship.
