One passenger was killed and four others injured after a Viking cruise ship off the coast of Argentina was struck with a powerful "rogue" wave.
The Viking Polaris, a cruise ship sailing toward Ushuaia, Argentina, was hit Wednesday on its side by the wave.
"There was a rogue wave incident involving the Viking Polaris on November 29 at 22:40 local time, while the ship was sailing towards Ushuaia, Argentina," Viking confirmed. "The ship sustained limited damage during the incident and arrived in port in Ushuaia without further incident the afternoon of November 30."
