Worker lucky to be alive after being buried in an avalanche of coal in ship's hold
A DOCK worker is lucky to be alive after being buried up to his neck by an avalanche of coal in a ship's hold. Emergency services battled for more than an hour to haul Ian Jennings, 58, of Grimsby, to safety after his brother Kenny raised the alarm. The 67-year-old, working in the same hold as his brother, on Immingham Docks, pictured, scooped coal away with his hands to reach him. A number of other ships' crew scrambled to free the trapped stevedore. The rescue drama happened at about 9.30pm on Saturday as the team worked to clear build-ups of coal from the sides and floor of the hold, which is thought to be about 90ft deep. The cargo of the 51,000 tonne MV Tango Sea was being unloaded when a quantity of coal built up one the side of the hold slipped, crushing Mr Jennings.
