A mariner fell from the open hatch bulk carrier Federal Champlain, owned by Canadian shipowner Fednav.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) said on Thursday, December 14 it was deploying a team of investigators to Montreal, Quebec, to assess the man overboard incident from the bulk carrier.
As informed, there were no fatalities.
Further details on what was the cause of the incident and the condition of the mariner were not disclosed.
“The TSB will gather information and assess the occurrence,” the agency added.
TSB and Fednav are yet to reply to World Maritime News with a comment on the incident.
Based on the 2016-built ship’s latest AIS data, it is underway using engine in St. Lawrence River, heading for Quebec, where it is expected to arrive today.
The Marshall Islands-flagged Laker, featuring 34,600 dwt, is fully laden.
