With great regret, we've been made to understand that a member of ILA Local Union 1423 (Brunswick, GA) was killed in an accident at that port early (3:00 AM) this morning.
Not all facts have come to us as yet, but we do know that the work at hand was the loading of the K Line car ship M/V APPOLON HIGHWAY. Early word, is that the worker "went off the berth and into the water."
Four of his colleagues attempted immersed water rescue, but were unsuccessful. They were hospitalized for treatment of hypothermia. I believe they'll be OK, but am monitoring the situation.
