Deceased cruise ship worker named
The Norwegian Breakaway crew member who died on Wednesday during a safety training drill has been identified as Diogenes Carpio.
The 41-year-old from the Philippines was one of four workers who plunged into the sea at Dockyard after a lifeboat broke from its tethering.
Another 41-year-old Filipino man has been flown to the United States for further medical treatment, while a 25-year-old Romanian man and a 31-year-old Indian man have been discharged from King Edward VII Memorial Hospital after being treated.
The cruise ship had arrived from New York earlier that morning carrying 4,300 passengers, and is due to return to the East Coast of the United States today.
Meanwhile, the Government’s health and safety officer and the Department of Maritime Administration are continuing enquiries into the circumstances of the incident.
