Egyptian ferry

Sounds like a poorly managed disaster. With the captain disappearing too...

Shades of the General Slocum disaster off New York City harbor the day before Bloomday.

There's an interesting science fiction novella Time Adrift about a time traveler visiting the burning General Slocum. You can read it online.
