After a Staten Island ferry carrying an estimated 1,500 passengers crashed into a concrete pier off New York in 2003, officials had no record of who was on the ferry. But one person who was most likely not on the ferry that afternoon is former security guard George Adde, according to a judge who this week threw out Adde's personal injury claim against New York City for neck and pain injuries Adde claimed to have suffered in the accident. Adde's story apparently began to fall apart soon after he sat down for his deposition.
