According to data provided by TAIC, the crew members were lashing a stack of logs to the deck of the Panama-registered bulk carrier Coresky OL.

They were using a ship’s crane to tighten wire ropes on the stack, when a wire rope broke and recoiled, striking a crew member, at about 0145.

The crew member died from their injuries and another was injured.

The ship was detained for investigation.

TAIC is opening an inquiry into a marine, rail or air accident or incident if it believes recommendations or lessons may help improve transport safety.
