Woman died after falling from ferry
A woman fell overboard from the 'Stena Horizon' on June 7, 2020. The Solent Coastguard deployed the Weymouth RNLI all-weather lifeboat which was launched at 5.18 p.m. Just before the lifeboat arrived on scene 26 miles SSW of Portland Bill, news came in that the body of the woman had been found. A rescue boat from the ferry which had been launched to search for her, found her body and had taken her onto the vessel, which then continued on its journey. The lifeboat was released and returned to Weymouth at 7.38 p.m. where it was refuelled and made ready for the next shout.
16 migrants found in container
Irish authorities have launched an investigation after 16 migrants were found in a lorry container on the 'STena Horizon' in the morning of Nov 21, 2019, which had left Cherbourg at 9 p.m. on Nov 20 and docked at Rosslare port the following afternoon at 3.35 p.m. An employee had made the discovery in a sealed trailer during a routine check of the vehicle deck. All the migrants were then taken out of container and moved to a private lounge area to be look after by crew for the rest of the journey. They were all alive and in good health. "Stena Line has alerted security and immigration officials in Rosslare so as the necessary arrangements could be made for the group on the vessel's arrival in Rosslare. Officers were looking into potential breaches of immigration legislation, and carrying out medical and immigration assessments on each person. The truck in which the migrants were found had been detained, and the driver and owners were assisting with enquiries.
Medevac off Cherbourg
On Aug 22, 2014, around 1 p.m. a Crew member of the "Stena Horizon" was unwell. The Cross Joburg recommended his medical evacuation. The ship was about 100 miles off Cherbourg in the traffic separation scheme of the Caskets, so the Cross had to divert and guide a half dozen vessels. An EC 225 helicopter of the Navy was mobilized, with a team of the health department of the army on board. Shortly before 3 p.m. the helicopter hoisted the patient and took him to Cherbourg for further treatment in Hospital.
