Crew / Passenger Injuries and Overboards
(overboard / rescued) On June 28, 2013, a 36-year-old male passenger was reported missing and presumably overboard. The man (of Estonian origin) survived over 7 hours without lifejacket in the Baltic Sea waters.
The man was discovered missing on June 29, after the ship berthed in Stockholm and started passenger disembarkation. The CCTV record showed him falling from the ferry near Mariehamn (Aland Island), while the vessel was en-route from Helsinki to Stockholm.
Reportedly, the sea water temperature was 16-18 Celsius (60-64 Fahrenheit). Fortunately, a Finnish marine rescue vessel located the man ~2 hours later, approx 4 km / 2,5 ml from Lemland Island (Aland). He suffered hypothermia (body temperature 26 Celsius / 79 Fahrenheit).
