Chief Engineer passed away on Epic Gas vessel
It is with great sadness that we confirm the sad and untimely passing of our colleague who served onboard Epic St. Kitts as Chief Engineer.
Our late colleague fell unconscious and collapsed while having his lunch aboard the vessel. His crew members attempted to resuscitate him, but their efforts were sadly in vain.
He was conveyed to a local hospital in Mongla, Bangladesh where he was unfortunately pronounced dead on arrival by attending medical staff. We are awaiting the medical autopsy report to understand the cause of death.
We extend our deepest condolences to the family of our fallen colleague, and we are arranging to provide them with all the necessary support and assistance during this difficult period.
We commend his colleagues on board Epic St. Kitts for their swift response and thank the local authorities for their assistance.
