A worker died after he fell into the water while transferring from a service vessel to the chemical tanker Nord Gardenia, the vessel’s operator Danish shipping company Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN A/S confirmed.
The 47-year-old service technician was soon pulled out of the water and evacuated by a rescue helicopter. He was declared deceased upon arrival at the hospital.

Relevant authorities will launch an investigation into the accident.
According to AIS data provided by MarineTraffic, the 40,000 dwt vessel was scheduled to depart the anchorage en route to Germany’s Bremen yesterday evening.
