Fri Nov 28 10:12:32 CET 2014 Timsen

Five men were dead after entering an oxygen-starved compartment in the barge "Nivani Colossus" in Port Moresby on Nov 26, 2014. They were believed to have dropped unconscious and lost their lives after entering the compartment for an inspection of damage to the bow. But one man was believed to have survived after being given breathing help and heart resuscitation efforts. Three were employees of the construction company Nivani Ltd, and two were from Karavia village mid-way between Rabaul and Kokopo. The barge had suffered some damage in a beach landing recently and the men opened the hatch to one of the airtight compartments to inspect damage to the bow. One man survived the scene. Five were pronounced dead after attempts to revive them failed.

AMSA said it was working with the Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Port Moresby to gather more information.
