*Back in March, a British ferry crashed into a French fishing boat, killing the fishing boat’s captain and one other person. The cause of the crash? Well, you’ll never believe it, but it was a hot conversation about actress Halle Berry.
According to an investigative report, the ferry’s captain and first officer were engaging in a “serious” talk about the Catwoman, ignoring the radar, according to the Daily Mail. The report quotes the captain as saying he was tired because he watched Catwoman the night before.
“Yesterday evening I watched ‘Catwoman‘ on the TV. I’m an idiot because after that I slept very badly,” he said. “[Halle] was jumping from everywhere like a cat. She is very beautiful. She was wearing sexy outfit.”
The report, conducted by the French investigation body BEAmer, says the topic distracted the boat’s crew and led to the crash:
“In the wheelhouse almost continuous talking, without any link to the watch-keeping, maintained an atmosphere not compatible with the necessary concentration to conduct a high speed craft in the fog.”
Since the crash, the investigation is ongoing, however, the captain and his first officer were fired.
