Captain, Chief Engineer Killed on Ship
Last week a ship reportedly was diverted to Bermuda following the death of its captain and chief engineer, according to a report on http://bermudasun.bm. Bermuda Maritime Operations were contacted by agents for the Greek ship Aegean Angel. According to a statement, the ship was on a voyage from Talin in Estonia to Houston, Texas, with fuel oil on board.
The U.S. Coast Guard airlifted the deputy captain from the 274 metre ‘Aegean Angel’, after he received injuries in the accident which tragically killed the two other men.
The statement, as reported by http://bermudasun.bm , said: “The accident occurred when ships senior officers decided to make an inspection of the deck areas to check for damage after the passage of some heavy weather. “Unfortunately during the inspection, a large wave hit the vessel and killed the captain and chief engineer whilst leaving the chief officer seriously injured.”
The ship is expected to arrive off Bermuda early Monday morning.
