A Nightmare Scenario

That is until the ocean decides that it doesn't want to play nice anymore. That happened to the Viking Sky, a cruise ship off the coast of Norway, this weekend. After losing power and the engines, 1,300 passengers and the crew were left waiting to be rescued by helicopters and smaller boats.

Basically, a nightmare for anyone who watched Kate let Leo sink to the bottom of the ocean in Titanic.
