A swimmer put himself in harm’s way after he swam behind a ferry going astern last Sunday.

The Maritime Operations Centre said: “The ferry Georgia reported to Bermuda Radio that a swimmer had attempted to cross astern of the ferry as it was moving astern on departure from the berth at Salt Kettle.

“The captain used the ships whistle to attract attention and the swimmer was able to move out of the way.”

The centre added that police were contacted about the incident and it was requested that a unit try to find the swimmer and investigate the “dangerous incident”.
