Fatal accident with rescue boat on 27 March 2012 on board the container vessel ANNA MÆRSK 

22. April 2013
The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board has prepared a report about the fatal accident with a rescue boat on board the container vessel ANNA MÆRSK on 27 March 2012.



In the morning of 27 March 2012, during a port stay in Kobe (Japan), a drill with the rescue boat was planned on board the container vessel ANNA MÆRSK. During the two-man crew’s embarkation of the rescue boat, a split pin in the rescue boat’s suspension failed, and the boat and its crew fell approximately 18 metres to the water.

In the accident one crewmember was killed instantly. The other crewmember was seriously injured.

The report is in English and is available here.
