Police and fire officials say 30 to 50 people were injured when a ferry struck a dock during rush hour in New York City’s financial district.
News reports say the Seastreak Wall Street ferry from New Jersey banged into the mooring as it arrived.
Officials say one person is in critical condition with head injuries.
Some patients were carried out strapped to stretchers, their heads and necks immobilized. About a dozen passengers on stretchers were spread out on the dock, surrounded by emergency workers.
A corner of the ferry appeared to have been ripped open Wednesday morning.
A receptionist at Seastreak says she doesn’t have any information but says company officials are at the scene trying to gather information.
