Laurie Dishman told senators through tears that she was choked and raped on a Royal Caribbean cruise by one of the line's employees, using her experience to shed light on the dangers that passengers might face on cruises.
Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W. Va., the committee chairman, said Dishman's experience and other horror stories recounted at the hearing point to a lack of oversight and accountability for passenger safety in the cruise industry.
"In spite of the evidence that crimes, fires, mechanical failures, drownings and mishandled medical emergencies occur with disturbing regularity on cruise ships, the industry continues to deny that it has a problem," Rockefeller said.
Philip Gerson, a Miami-based civil trial lawyer who has litigated cruise liner cases, said significant improvements in passenger safety are needed.
Another witness, Kim Ware of Houston, said she was a passenger on the Carnival Triumph in 2013 when it lost power in the Gulf of Mexico after an engine room fire that disabled basic systems including water and sewage.
A vintage rail company that hauls hundreds of thousands of tourists every year along the route of the historic Klondike Gold Rush has suspended operations while it investigates a derailment that injured nine people.
The derailment involved two vintage locomotives and four passenger rail cars, the company said in a written statement Wednesday night.
Medical workers went to the scene, where responders outnumbered the injured, said Jeremy Zidek, a spokesman for the state Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management.
The train is a popular tourist attraction, taking passengers on a three-hour, 40-mile roundtrip tour out of Skagway.
"Before making this decision, the FAA worked with its U. S. government counterparts to assess the security situation in Israel and carefully reviewed both significant new information and measures the government of Israel is taking to mitigate potential risks to civil aviation," the FAA said.
American Airlines — parent company of US Airways, which has one daily flight from Philadelphia to Tel Aviv — said: We are in the process of assessing the situation and will make a decision as soon as possible on when to resume service.
The FAA's flight ban was criticized by the Israeli government and by Republican Sen.

(FlyinAce2000)The European Central Bank announced today that hackers have stolen about 20,000 email addresses and an unknown but lower amount of other information like physical addresses and phone numbers from a database serving its website. The information was reportedly lifted from the ECB’s listings of people who register for its events, and isn’t tied to internal ECB systems.
The ECB, which oversees the financial systems for 18 member countries, said on its official site that it found out about the theft when hackers sent an anonymous email “seeking financial compensation” for the data.
