July 20, 2016 Jim Walker, Cruise Law News
A number of newspapers in Bermuda are reporting that four people were injured when a lifeboat fell from the Norwegian Breakaway while the cruise ship was docked at port today July 20.
The Royal Gazette says that one of the crew members is in critical condition at the hospital. This newspaper reports that a lifeboat had fallen from the cruise ship and "was left hanging from one wire resulting in four people falling into the water."
Bernews reports that NCL released a statement, saying that "on July 20 while Norwegian Breakaway was alongside in Bermuda, an incident occurred involving the ship’s rescue boat during a routine drill, affecting four crew members."
Bernews clarifies that a "rescue boat," as opposed to a lifeboat, was involved in the mishap. A video shows what this newspaper says is a rescue boat flipped upside down in the water with its hull partially showing.
