On 18/07/2023, during a routine port stay in Port Kerkyra, Corfu Island, Greece, a 48-year-old male crew member required emergency medical attention and was subsequently disembarked for treatment. The crew member, serving as an Assistant Refrigeration Engineer, suffered an injury to his right-hand finger during his duties.
Nature of Injury
The Assistant Refrigeration Engineer sustained an injury to his right-hand finger while attending to equipment onboard.
Given the nature and severity of the injury, the decision was made to offload the crew member. He was then admitted to a private clinic in the vicinity for the necessary medical care.
