Just before 9:40PM last night, 31 May, officers from the RCIPS, Cayman Islands Coast Guard, Cayman Islands Fire Service, the RCIPS Air Operations Unit and EMS responded to a report of a collision involving a fishing vessel and a sailboat in the Governor’s Harbour area off Magellan Quay, West Bay. The three occupants of the fishing vessel were said to have been thrown into the water, but were able to make it to shore safely. However, the captain of the fishing vessel received injuries in the collision and was transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital for treatment for what appear to be non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured.
The matter is currently under investigation by the Joint Marine Unit.
