The crew of the Amver participating Ro/Ro, Green Lake, had to rescue one of their own when a 54 year old crewman fell off a ladder and went overboard on June 29, 2011. The crew of the U.S. flagged ship immediately threw a life ring and smoke flare as the ship turned to retrieve the man, said a report from Bernews.com.
The ship diverted to Bermuda and met a pilot boat where the injured crewman was transferred and taken to an ambulance. He was then transported to a hospital, reportedly suffering from injuries to his collar bone and ribs. The Green Lake continued on its voyage to Texas.
The Green Lake enrolled in the Amver system on February 15, 1999 and has earned 10 awards for participation.
