West London Coroner's Court heard of the terrifying final moments on the Dhow party boat that sank, killing 58 people, on 30 March.
All the passengers on board were celebrating the topping out of the twin 240m high towers on the £85M ($151M) Trade Center.A coroner read out statements of two women who lost their husbands in the incident. One told the court of how the Dhow capsized as people moved from the buffet on the lower deck to the dance floor on the floor above. 'As it rocked right, it just continued going. it wasn't quick, it just did not right itself. Everybody began sliding into the water. People were falling all over the place screaming.'A total of 10 of the Atkins party of 14 lost their lives. Falsework supplier RMD Kwikform general manager Philip Moody also died after rescuing his wife and another woman passenger. Murray & Roberts lost 10 senior staff, one of whose partners died as well. Several of the contractor's team were from the UK.The inquest, for nine of the British victims, was adjourned until December by coroner Alison Thompson.
