Wahine passenger Doug Crombie: 'I thought, I'll be right'

From Sunday Morning, 9:35 am on 8 April 2018

On 10 April it's 50 years since the inter-island passenger ferry Wahine went down near the Wellington coast killing 53 people. Doug Crombie was on the ship with his cricket team from Lincoln University. He tells his story for the first time. On Tuesday there are a number of events in Wellington to remember that day, organised by the Wahine 50 Trust.
