The crew wasn't to blame for the Estonia ferry disaster, but metal fatigue or poor design might have been, investigators said Monday. "We can forget the theory of human error," said Tuomo Karppinen, a Finnish member of the commission that is investigating the disaster. "The crew had not left the bow door open." More than 900 people died when water flooded the Estonian ferry's deck after the 56-ton door was torn off during a storm.

A shipboard memorial service will be held Saturday off the Finnish island of Uto for the at least 885 people who died when the luxury ferry Estonia sank in the Baltic Sea in September. The Estonia capsized when its 56-ton bow door ripped off in a storm, allowing water to enter the ferry's huge car deck and destabilize the ship. Relatives of the Estonia victims--most of whom were Swedish--have been calling for the entire wreck to be raised from the seabed off southern Finland.
