We've just received word from friends at Houston, Texas, that a longshore worker has been hit by a dropped 3 high lashing rod while working on the deck of CMA-CGM LA SCALA, a 6646 TEU container vessel docked at Bayport Terminal.
We understand that he was life-flighted out of the terminal, after being attended to by Clear Lake emergency responders.
We're monitoring his status, and hoping for a complete recovery.
