Fox News, along with other news services, is reporting the sad news of
the sinking of a whale-watching ship off Vancouver Island and
consequent loss of life.

That being said, I'll note (with apologies) that whoever is manning
@FoxNews's Twitter account this evening has given us

"Canadian authorities: Whale watching boat carrying 27 sinks
http://fxn.ws/1MNz3VD" [1]

This leads to a story on the news network's website, which provides
the more subdued, but still crashblossomy

"At least 3 dead after whale watching boat carrying 27 sinks"
