A tragic accident occurred early in the morning May 4 in Algeciras waters, Spain, during crew change operation. Suezmax tanker BORDEIRA was about to set sail after completing MB cargo operation, when sign-on seaman slipped from ladder during boarding, and fell in water. He was quickly picked up from water and transported to hospital, sustaining broken arm and with symptoms of hypothermia, but otherwise, displaying no life-threatening symptoms. He died shortly after he was transferred to hospital, the exact cause of death unknown. A strange death of a man who apparently, didn’t suffer any serious, life-threatening injures.
A question might be (should be) asked, which of course, will remain unanswered – was he vaccinated before sign-on? If he was vaccinated, when did vaccination take place and what was the type of vaccine?
