TSB investigating seafarer death on Norden bulker at Port of Trois-Rivières

Canada’s Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) has deployed a team of investigators to the Port of Trois-Rivières after a crew member from bulk carrier Nord Quebec, operated by Danish owner Norden, died in an accident while berthing.

According to local media reports, the 38-year-old Filipino seafarer was struck on the head by a mooring rope, causing seriously injury and his subsequent death after being sent to hospital.

TSB has deployed a team of investigators to the port to gather information and assess the accident, delaying the loading operations of the ship.

Francis Dumont, a TSB investigator, described the way the accident occurred as very rare.
