A boat packed with revelers on a long holiday weekend collided with a ferry and sank off Hong Kong, killing at least 38 people and injuring dozens, authorities said. The boat was carrying utility company workers and their families to famed Victoria Harbour to watch a fireworks display in celebration of China's National Day and mid-autumn festival. The two vessels collided Monday night near Lamma Island off the southwestern coast of Hong Kong Island.
