British Sapphire

Australia’s ATSB is investigating injuries to crew members of the BP-owned, Isle of Man registered liquefied natural gas tanker British Sapphire off Darwin, Northern Territory, on 16 May 2010. It is understood that two crew members were injured when the ship’s rescue boat fell after its winches failed during recovery operation. The boat had been launched as part of the evacuation of another crewmember who was suffering a suspected angina attack.
