Summary Nr: 131579.015 Event: 12/09/2020Employee Is Killed After Falling Into River With No Life Jac
At 9:45 a.m. on December 9, 2020, Employee #1, employed by a construction compan y, was assigned to clean hatch openings and covers on a derrick boat, so that th e hatch openings could be closed and sealed after the Load Line Certification In spection was completed. There were no witnesses to this incident, but according to subsequent investigation, Employee #1 was believed to have been removing sil icon caulking and sweeping debris away from the port side hatch openings and cov ers, near the main deck edge and approximately one-third of the vessel length fr om the bow. Employee #1 was found by the superintendent. When found, he was un responsive in 40 degree Fahrenheit water below the deck area and between the tir es protecting the derrick boat's hull and the shore wall. He was not wearing a personal flotation device when found. As of May 5, 2021, the county medical exa miner had not determined cause of death, although the preliminary examination su ggested that Employee #1 had not drowned, no significant injuries were observed, and hypothermia had not been ruled out. Being immersed in 40 degree Fahrenheit water for an unknown time period is believed to have contributed to his death.
