Ship diverts to Bermuda

A 59-year-old Korean man who took ill on board a bulk carrier bound from Texas to Belfast is due to arrive in Bermuda this morning for medical treatment.

A Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre duty officer said the South Korean-registered, 24,500-ton

Ocean Lord, had diverted from its route and was due to arrive off the East End at 8am.

The centre got a call at 1am yesterday to say the man was sick when the vessel was 340 nautical miles east of the Island. The duty officer could not give details on the nature of the illness.
