A tanker bound for the UK diverted to the island earlier this week after a crew member on board fell ill.

According to an incident report, the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre was contacted by the Meyer Shipping Agency at about 1.30pm on Sunday regarding the Bermuda-registered LNG Bonny II.

They were informed that the ship, which had been en route from Cove Point, Maryland, to the Isle of Grain, UK, had turned towards Bermuda to disembark an ill crew member.

“The Nigerian national, who had been suffering from chest pains, showed no sign of improvement following medical advice from ashore,” the report said.

“Shortly after 2.30pm on Monday, the patient was safely transferred on-board the pilot boat St David to Ordnance Island, and taken via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.”
