Ship to bring injured crewman ashore
A container ship bound for Mexico is expected to be met off the coast of Bermuda tonight after a crew member suffered a suspected broken ankle.
The Polar Mexico was travelling from Bremerhaven, Germany, to the port city of Altamira when the 46-year-old was injured.
A Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre duty officer said a call was received at about 7.30am yesterday when the vessel was 800 miles east of the island.
It was thought the Polish crewman had suffered a compound fracture to his left ankle.
The ship was expected to be met by the pilot boat St David off the east end of the island at 10pm this evening so the injured man can be brought on shore.
He will be taken by ambulance to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
