Navy Salvage Man Dies on Cougar Ace

Wednesday, August 02, 2006
The Alaska Coast Guard is reporting that a member of a salvage team looking at how to stabilize a listing ship in the Aleutian Islands died when he lost his footing, slid down the ship's deck and hit his head. A team of four was prepping to leave the Cougar Ace on July 30 when a naval architect slipped and was knocked unconscious. He was flown to a Coast Guard cutter nearby with a doctor and a clinic but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful. He was declared dead about an hour later. The four-member salvage team had just completed an internal survey of the ship and was preparing to disembark when the accident occurred. The accident is under investigation from the Coast Guard.
