Passenger died during crossing to Roscoff
A 26-year-old man from Ireland died on July 2 aboard the "Pont-Aven" during a crossing between Cork and Roscoff between 8 and 9 p.m. of a cardiac arrest. The young man had embarked at 4 p.m. in Cork. The ship's nurse, in conjunction with the Toulouse-based Maritime Medical Consultation Center, failed to resuscitate him. The condition of the young man, disabled and a priori under respiratory assistance, was not considered incompatible with a trans-Channel crossing.Upload News
