Tourists die in Italy ferry tragedy

Two tourists drowned while trying to drive off an Italian ferry after the connecting ramp was pulled away, plunging them into the dock.

Investigators are studying a closed-circuit video of the incident in Genoa to find out why the ramp from the Moby Otta, en route from Sardinia, was moved.

Paramedics tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate one of the two Germans after they managed to escape the car. The other remained trapped inside as it sank.
