Filipino man dies during Norwegian Breakaway’s routine safety drill

A 41-year-old Filipino crewman on Bermuda-incorporated, Miami, Florida-based Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.’s Norwegian Breakaway lost his life after he fell overboard during a safety training drill while the ship was anchored at King’s Wharf in Dockyard in Hamilton, Bermuda on Wednesday, July 20. The victim was one of four crew members who were taken to the local hospital, a report from The Royal Gazette showed. The three other crew members sustained injuries of an undisclosed nature and were being medically treated.

According to a Bermuda Maritime Operations spokesman, the rope tethering of the lifeboat got loosened and it was left hanging from one wire, causing four crew members to fall into the water; one of the men who fell into the water broke his bones. The men were rescued by staff of the tour boat Aristocrat, who pulled the injured men ashore.

Acting Minister of Tourism, Development, and Transport of the One Bermuda Alliance Grant Gibbons said the government had already contacted Norwegian Cruise Line to talk about the matter.
