Injured sailors landed in Bermuda
Two injured seamen were this afternoon transferred from their ship to Bermuda for hospital treatment after their cargo vessel was hit by a rogue wave.
The two men — crew on the car carrier Pegasus Highway — were rushed to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital after they made landfall at Ordnance Island in St George’s around 4.30pm.
One of the sailors suffered cuts to his face and the other sustained head, hand and leg injuries late on Thursday night.
The men, both Filipinos, were carrying out a cargo inspection on the car carrier when a wave hit the ship around 300 miles northeast of Bermuda.
The ship docked at the pilot station in St George’s and the two men were transferred to a pilot boat then taken to Ordnance Island and waiting emergency services.
A spokesman for the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre said: “There were no delays or any incidents. It was straightforward and the vessel has now resumed its passage.”
