On December.15 2010 a boat carrying up to 100 Iranian, Iraqi and Kurdish asylum seekers crashed on sharp cliffs by Christmas Island in Australia. At least 30 people died. Dozens of locals witnessed the shipwreck and tried to help the drowning men, women ,and children as they struggled against the big waves.
I  think it was good that there was people there to help because if there wasn’t then more people could have died. I wonder how they didn’t see the rocks because you would think the would have tried to avoid the rocks in stead of going towards them.
I got my information from globalvoicesonline.org
