The 60-ton front cargo door of the sunken ferry Estonia was torn off during a storm when its locks failed, investigators said Monday after examining video pictures of the sunken ship. More than 800 people were killed in the disaster. The investigators' preliminary conclusions were based on more than 15 hours of videotape taken by remote-controlled cameras of the wrecked ferry, which went down off the coast of Finland in a violent storm Wednesday.

When Lennart and Birgitta Berglund imagine those horrible last moments in the raging Baltic Sea, they like to think Birgitta's parents met death's cold advance in the warmth of each other's arms.

And maybe they are still there--locked in their final embrace 250 feet beneath the sea. "But we are realistic," Lennart Berglund said.

Sweden decided Thursday to leave more than 800 bodies inside the sunken ferry Estonia and preserve the wreck as a grave on the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The long-awaited decision immediately drew fire from some relatives who had hoped to retrieve the bodies of their loved ones. "This is one hell of a stupid decision," Kerstin Henriksson, a relative of two of the victims, told the Swedish news agency TT.
