(CMR) The Joint Marine Unit is now investigating the circumstances surrounding the collision of two vessels in the Governor's Harbour area off Magellan Quay, West Bay, Monday night.
Reports are that just before 9:40 pm, 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. 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.
