Amver ship battered by waves, 2 crew dead

Tradewinds reported two crewmen from the Amver participating tanker Aegean Angel, the 47 year old captain and 33 year old chief mechanic, were killed when a massive wave struck their ship as it steamed from Estonia to Houston.  The ship is currently en route to Bermuda for assistance.

You may remember the Aegean Angel rescued 11 sailors from the sunken vessel Tell Tale II after it went down 300 miles south of Puerto Rico April 15, 2010 2008. The crew even earned the Lloyd's List Amver Assisted Rescue at Sea award for their efforts.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the crew who died and the entire Arcadia ship management family.
