Reports suggest the Ferry crew did a magnificent job.

It appears to have been a very busy day- Southend pier damaged by a barge, an historic ship was rescued after a mast was smashed in Devon. Well done to the RNLI and rescue crews

Hmmm. Does having a cig involve hopping over a rail?

Sounds like an "on purpose" job to me...

Remarkable job on the part of the crew!

Jeni Anderson tells story of survival after plunging from ferry into North Sea | Mail Online

interview with the woman

i remember another woman fell of a ferry on the near same route a few years ago and spent about 2 hours in the water ,she was rescued by an anchored ship that she drifted past and thankfully the guy on watch heard her shouts and rescued her ,
i could understand it happening on the way BACK from Amsterdam

Yup - I still think she climbed the rail. Drunk maybe, but those rails are high for me, and very high for most women. No way you fall over one by mistake.
