It gets worse.
The ferry "Riverdance" was struck by a freak wave on the night of January 31st, 2008, in the Irish sea. Her cargo shifted as she rolled, and was unable to recover from a 60 degree list. The vessel lost power, and, broadside to the waves, drifted some 16 miles. Rescue helicopters fought the storm to lift crew and passengers off.
Eventually she ran aground off the town of Cleveleys, north of Blackpool on the NW coast of England. Salvage attempts were hampered by several further severe storms.
Just scrap metal now.
Sinking into the sands.
