The MS Estonia Sinking On a dark and stormy night, the MS Estonia sunk in the Baltic Sea, taking 852 of the 989 passengers with it. Initially, a failure of the bow visor was blamed. Except the bow visor should have broken off yet was still attached to the boat, Sweden refused to raise the wreck, then made an agreement with six nations to never go near the site again, tried to encase the entire thing in concrete (which is what usually happens
if it were Chernobyl), investigators found evidence of weapons smuggling from Russia and a large explosion, nine crew members went missing and had their hospital records erased and
nevermind. Probably just a giant squid fart.
