E.R. Athina crewman killed in training exercise

Heard this on the VHF when we were out on Sunday fishing near Peterhead. Sadly the crewman died. Seas were calm, no more than F3/4 with light northerly. Having said that - there had been gales in the preceeding days. Apparently the ship left Aberdeen on saturday afternoon and was moored around a mile off the coast. Now back in port as far as I'm aware.

Details here: A seaman from Split has died near the port of Aberdeen on June 12, 2012, after a three meter high wave trapped him inbetween the "E.R. Athina" he was working on and the vessel's tender during a training exercise. The accident happened one mile off the port when the man, who was the crew member of the "E.R. Athina", was in the boat's tender during an exercise drill. The sea was calm, but all of a sudden a three meter wave threw the tender in which the man was in, against the approaching "E.R. Athina". The man, who was about to be promoted to an officer, sustained serious internal injuries as he was trapped between the two boats. He was rushed to hospital where he later died.
