On December 30, 2020, the U.S. Coast Guard medevaced an injured fisherman from the fishing vessel Magnus Martens. Reports indicate the fisherman sustained a severe leg injury. He was ultimately taken to a hospital in Anchorage for treatment.
Injuries occurring on a vessel can be the result of many factors, including: human error, weather conditions, equipment failure, poor maintenance practices or a lack of necessary equipment. Injuries can often be a result of a combination of the above factors. The unfortunate reality is that many maritime companies cut corners, which puts the lives of their workers and the general public at risk on a daily basis. Safe boat owners and operators must have adequate procedures in place to govern the work performed by the crew to ensure the safety of everyone on board.
