    the captain has an out
    the coast guard directed all to abandon ship, via bull horn
    now the question is, why didn't the students do the same
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    He should have stayed and helped others to safety. That's what a captain does.

    They were ordered over the ships PA system to remain where they were. And once a ship lists like that, its pretty hard to get out. You have to either go to the top deck (where the passengers should have been once the issue started) or climb to the non submerged side.

    Not necessarily. There does come a point where you save yourself as the captain, especially if the incident happens fast. Not sure what the timeline is on this incident so I'm reserving my judgment until the official investigation results are released.

    So he should commit suicide?

    How do you know he didn't do everything he possibly could? (without getting himself killed that is).
