Oil tanker diverts to Bermuda after crew member falls ill

M/V Dali

An oil tanker made an emergency detour to the island yesterday after a crew member fell ill.

According to an incident report, Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre received a notification from Meyers that M/V Dali, a Cayman-registered tanker, had a crew member who needed urgent medical attention.

The report said: “Arriving offshore in Bermuda waters today at 6.30am, the 41-year old Filipino crew member was safely transferred to Ordnance Island by the pilot boat St George, and subsequently taken by ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for medical treatment.”

The ship, which had been travelling from New Orleans to Skagen, Denmark, has since continued on it’s journey.
