Most of 95 people killed in Kiribati ferry disaster died from hunger, dehydration and hypothermia, inquiry finds

(CNN)Last January, 102 people boarded a ferry from a remote island in the South Pacific. Only seven of them survived.

A Commission of Inquiry report into the disaster off the coast of Kiribati, made publicly available on Monday, found a litany of problems behind the sinking of the MV Butiraoi, including a drunk crew and incompetent captain.
The commission, which was set up by the Kiribati government last year, found that most -- if not all -- of the 95 victims died from hunger, dehydration and hypothermia. One woman died while giving birth during the accident, the commission found.
