This morning at Liverpool port, UK, a Peel Ports worker suffered a fall into a cargo hold.
Apart from the media account below (which we were very grateful in receiving from a "Longshore Safety" FB page member), we haven't any further information but earnestly hope for the worker's well being and a quick recovery.
Updating this post, we understand from reliable sources that the fall occurred aboard C/V MOTIVATION D, A Liberian-flagged vessel of 900 TEU capacity (see photo within subsequent post).
We are also made to understand that operations underway at the relevant bay included the loading of 20' containers below deck. It is alleged that the worker was on a ladder (location unknown) and either slipped or otherwise lost his footing.
His injuries are apparently quite serious, including a broken pelvis and a ruptured spleen. Our thoughts are with him.
