The U.S. Coast Guard issued a Safety Alert reporting that the second
engineer on a foreign vessel died after he became accidentally trapped in
the main propulsion engine?s scavenging air receiver. While the ship was in
port, he had apparently entered the space to check on recent repairs and
became trapped when the door closed and one of the dogs dropped into place.
He failed to tell anyone of his plans and failed to have anyone standing by
to provide assistance. Mariners are reminded that a confined space is any
location that, by design, has limited openings for entry or egress and is
not intended for continuous human occupancy.
