AN Italian ferry captain risks losing his job after being caught on video allowing a young woman passenger to take control of his vessel.
Michele Siniscalch (54) has been suspended after he apparently allowed Maria Rosaria Federico to steer his hydrofoil as it travelled across the Bay of Naples at high speed.
A friend of Ms Federico's filmed the episode and posted it on the internet.
The captain claims she was never in charge as the controls had been disabled. (©Daily Telegraph, London)
