MARITIME | Crewman killed in (yet another) lifeboat fall

One crewman died and another was injured when a lifeboat fell into the sea during a drill in Turkey.

The accident happened on the 5,500-dwt Belorus (built 2005) at Aliaga on 5 September.

Turkey’s search and rescue centre in Ankara told TradeWinds a rope had snapped, sending the men overboard.

The dead man was named as Dmitry Zvrev, 31, while Pavel Davidov sustained an injured arm.

An investigation has begun.

The vessel is listed as being owned by Orion Shipping of St Petersburg and remains at Aliaga.
