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.

The incident occurred on Wednesday evening while the 2014-built tanker was anchored off Skagen, Denmark.
