MSC Flaminia takes a new victim after she burned


MSC Flaminia fire claimed 1 more life raising victim toll to 3 – a Filipino crew member has died on 7th of October in hospital in Portugal from severe burns he suffered in a fire. An official statement:

During the fire on the board of the container vessel MSC Flaminia the 41-year-old received heavy burns that have been medicated in a specialty hospital for burn wounds in Portugal.

As for the rest, there are absolutely no news except that the AIS being switched off around 2nd of October, 2012. The ship might be moved to other place or there is just no need in AIS signal any more, as it was officially announced that the container ship MSC Flaminia might be dismantled. No news from cargo owners also, so generally it’s unknown whether all the containers were offloaded and handed over to owners, or offloading still under way, or whatever.
