Untitled[edit]

Have added a reference from Det Norske Veritas. Intend to reword, shortening the discusion about the number of casualties and including more details the unsucessful rescue. Feel free to complain! JRPG 21:25, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Canezal family[edit]

Are the teacher and his daughter notable in any way? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.83.30.182 (talk) 08:00, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Please read reference material [1] "Caltex Phil Inc vs Sulpicio Lines Inc : 131166 : September 30, 1999 : J. Pardo : First Division Cdvl (talk) 19:11, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Expanded and revised[edit]

Using references from the New York Times archives and from the print edition of the Philippine Daily Inquirer from the time of the accident.

Accuracy of death toll report[edit]

The official death toll for this casualty is 1,565, although some estimates still put the real number over 4,000. The best reference I've found for this is here: http://dic.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/750445 Is there something more authoritative to support a higher number?Alan (talk) 17:40, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

The page looks like a mirror of Wikipedia itself; probably an older version on the MV Doña Paz article. — KvЯt GviЯnЭlБ Speak! 13:42, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Name of oil tanker[edit]

Which referenced source gives the name of the oil tanker as Vector? I've followed a few of them (such as this one), but they call it the Victor. Johnson487682 (talk) 17:42, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Why the uncertainity?[edit]

It is hard to fathom the number of victims was not precisely counted in situ? The article says the ships sank in 545 meters of water, which doesn't even require an ROV expedition, as the wreck is also reachable by athmospheric diving suit pilots or tri-mix saturation divers with a diving bell mother-ship. 82.131.128.123 (talk) 21:04, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on MV Doña Paz. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

Collision?[edit]

Although this article has a section named "Collision", it doesn't have actual information about the collision: time of day (night), how it happened, etc. The conditions beforehand are documented, and the aftermath is as well, but nothing about the actual crash. This is perhaps the post important information about this ship. --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 15:48, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
