A high-profile, high-fatality marine accident in Hong Kong yielded a dramatic decision: The captains of both vessels are charged with manslaughter.

Hong Kong police charged the men Thursday in connection with a ferry collision last year that killed 39 people in the city's worst maritime disaster in decades.

A commuter ferry and a company boat carrying more than 120 staff and family to watch fireworks in the city's Victoria Harbour collided on the evening of Oct. 1 and the pleasure boat sank quickly.
