    In Macau, a fisherman was killed after his boat collided with a Cotai Jet high-speed catamaran from Hong Kong. Three other people were also injured in the accident, which happened shortly before noon.

    Interesting choice of wording. I would have assumed that the cat collided with the fishing boat.

    Same seems to apply to the ferry captains, seeing how Turbojet ferries have a tendency to collide with each other every now and then as well as with other vessels.
