 African Raptor  (Bulk Carrier)
9 min ago by Timsen

Bulkcarrier sued for negligence
A widow from St. John the Baptist Parish was suing the "African Raptor", alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries. Nayana Ambarish Parekh, individually and as personal representative of Ambarish Ramnikrai Parekh, deceased, filed a complaint on Sep. 15, 2016, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against the ship, alleging that the bulk carrier failed to ensure a safe means of ingress. According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 17, while Ambarish Ramnikrai Parekh was attempting to board the vessel to perform his duties, he fell into the Mississippi River from a ramp gangway. He was seen struggling to swim while waiting for rescue, but the river current eventually carried him away and pulled him underwater, and on July 19, his body was found by a passing tug. Plaintiff Nayana Ambarish Parekh has suffered loss of consortium, society and financial support, the suit alleges. The plaintiff held the "African Raptor" responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to have adequate crew members on proper stations and failed to take appropriate measures to effect a water rescue. The plaintiff requested a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount reasonable under the circumstances, plus all costs and interest, and for any other relief as the law may require. She was represented by Paul M. Sterbcow and Beth E. Abramson of Lewis, Kullman, Sterbcow & Abramson in New Orleans.

Rig move abandoned for the time being
Attempts to load the "Transocean Winner" on the "Hawk" off Lewis have been aborted on Cot 1 due to poor sea conditions in the morning which led the salvage team to temporarily abandon the operation. Officials will meet later to decide what to do next. Good weather is crucial to this element of the salvage operation going ahead. Report with photo: www.bbc.com/news/...
