A crew member with a head injury was evacuated to Bermuda on Tuesday night after an accident on the container ship Bernhard Schulte.

Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre [BMOC] spokesperson said, “RCC Bermuda received a call from the Singapore based management company of the Hong Kong registered container ship Bernhard Schulte. A crew member had an accident resulting in gash to the head and loss of consciousness.

“RCC Bermuda spoke directly to the ship’s captain with the United States Coast Guard Flight Surgeon conferenced in on the call, the ship was around 370 miles north east of Bermuda and the casualty needed medical attention as soon as possible. As air assets are not available in Bermuda consideration was given to flying a helicopter from Elizabeth City to Bermuda to refuel and fly on to the Bernhard Schulte.

“After calculating the timings involved the patient would receive medical care in around 18 hours with a helicopter evacuation, a similar time to the ship steaming to Bermuda at full speed. At around 10:30 on Tuesday evening the patient was transferred to Pilot Boat St David to meet an ambulance waiting at Ordnance Island, St Georges Harbour.”
