"A New York passenger ferry has hit a dock during the Manhattan rush hour, injuring as many as 50 people and tearing a hole in the vessel's bow.
More than a dozen passengers were seen lying on dockside stretchers under blankets as they awaited medical attention on a chilly January morning.
One person had suffered a serious head injury, the Associated Press reported.
The Seastreak Wall Street hit the mooring as it docked about 08:45 (13:45 GMT) after a trip from New Jersey." (BBC News)
Mars (accidents & injuries) rose a mere 2 minutes before the crash.

1. SKELETAL 'NESSIE' DISCOVERED IN OUR GALAXY
"Just as there are bones in your arms, there are bones in our galaxy's arms as well -- and researchers using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have shared the x-rays to prove it.
Alright, they're not actually x-rays but rather images made from observations in infrared light, which Spitzer is specifically designed to detect. (One does need to clarify such things in astronomy.) Orbiting Earth over 172 million kilometers away, Spitzer can see infrared radiation that isn't visible from the ground, radiation that's emitted from anything in the Universe warmer than zero Kelvin."
2. 'Zombie' planet Fomalhaut b shocks scientists
"The unbalanced orbit of a so-called "zombie planet" in a dusty star system has astronomers struggling to explain the exoplanet's behavior.
New observations of the planet Fomalhaut b by the Hubble Space Telescope revealed the oddball orbit, which has wild extremes between its closest and farthest points from the parent star and appears to cross through a vast minefield of dusty debris.
"We are shocked. This is not what we expected," said study leader Paul Kalas, an astronomer with the University of California at Berkeley and the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif., in a statement Tuesday, Jan. 8."
3. Hook - or, Saturn the great benefic
"When reading ancient texts, we usually come across the planet classification into malefics and benefics.
It is, in itself, a good thing: it helps us to distinguish one planet from the other in a quick way. Saturn and Mars are malefics, Jupiter and Venus are benefics, the others are neither.
The problem is: we shouldn't take this classification as describing the planets' essence. Nothing created is evil. If that's true down here, in our world of generation and corruption, let alone in the sky."
