What Was the Root Cause of Ship Grounding? Company Says … Map Error

Agence French-Presse reports that the cause of a ship going aground on a Greek reef was an inaccurate chart that was issued by the Greek Hydrographic Service. The cruise company says that the reef was larger and further out to sea than the chart indicated.

Is this the result of an accident being caused by a single failed Safeguard (the chart) or should have other Safeguards been in place?
