警方发现Maersk Alabama号船上两名美国人死亡

来源:国际海员服务中心网 2014-02-22 02:00:11 责任编辑: 人气:

塞舌尔群岛警方周三称Maersk Alabama号集装箱船上发现有两具美国安保人员尸体。

该船当时系泊在印度洋群岛的维多利亚港。两名44岁人员尸体是周二被发现的。美国有线电视新闻网络(CNN)是首家从Twitter上得知此事件的媒体。

“本周将验尸确认突然死亡原因”,警方称并补充说事件还在调查中。

Maersk Alabama号船2009年在非洲东海岸差点被索马里海盗劫持。2013年放映的《菲利普船长》电影是基于此事件拍摄的。

这两名人员是Trident集团员工,这是一家位于弗吉尼亚州的海上安保服务公司。该公司总裁Tom Rothrauff称这两名人员是前海豹突击队队员。

“这件事很怪异。当然,也很令人震惊。他们都很优秀”, Rothrauff说,“我完全不知道发生了什么事情”。

马士基航运公司资深总监Kevin N. Speers在一份声明里称安保承保人员是于1月29日登上船只的,他们的死亡和“船只操作或他们作为安保人员的责任无关”。

Speers在声明里称马士基航运公司是按照美国海岸警卫队安保指令和Trident集团签署合同的。

“签约的安保是保护船员和船只的反海盗防护计划的一部分”,Speers说,   “Maersk Alabama号船开始为非洲东海岸提供支线运输服务后,就一直在高风险海域航行。船只已清关可装卸货物了,现在靠泊等待后续检查”。

海岸警卫队二级军士长Daniel Tremper称美国海岸警卫队收到了这两名美国公民死亡的通知,正在进行调查,但“由于调查性质,现在我们能做的就这些”。

国务院发言人Marie Harf已确认这两名人员是美国公民。Harf称海岸警卫队参与调查是因为Maersk Alabama号船是一艘悬挂美国旗帜的船只。

警方称该船只上周日到达塞舌尔群岛,船上有24名船员,预计下周二离港。

塞舌尔群岛警方称这两具尸体是一名安保人员周二下午4点30分到舱室查看一名人员时发现的。

 2009年4月,四名武装海盗企图在索马里海岸380英里处劫持Maersk Alabama号船。船员将海盗的船只击沉、挫败他们劫持这艘集装箱船的企图后,海盗将Richard Phillips船长绑架到一艘救生艇上。3天后,海军狙击兵将三名海盗射死、抓获第四名海盗后,绑架事件结束。Phillips船长安然无恙。

该船2009年晚些时候又受到海盗攻击,武装安保人员击退了海盗。2011年3月海盗企图再次登上船只,因安保人员鸣枪示警没有得逞。

Police: 2 Americans found dead on Maersk Alabama -- 'Captain Phillips' ship

Two American security officers have been found dead on the Maersk Alabama container ship, police in the Seychelles said Wednesday.

The vessel was moored at Port Victoria in the Indian Ocean archipelago. The men, both 44, were found dead on Tuesday. CNN first learned about the incident on Twitter.

"A postmortem will be carried out this week in order to establish the cause of their sudden deaths," police said, adding that the police investigation is ongoing.

The Maersk Alabama was targeted by Somali pirates in an attempted hijacking off the east coast of Africa in 2009. The 2013 film "Captain Phillips" is based on the incide

t.

The two men worked for Trident Group, a Virginia-based maritime security services firm. The company's president, Tom Rothrauff, said the men were former Navy SEALs.

"It's bizarre. Of course, it's a shock. They're all great guys," Rothrauff said. "I'm absolutely clueless as to what happened."

Kevin N. Speers, a senior director for Maersk Line Limited, said in a statement that the security contractors boarded the vessel on January 29, and that their deaths were were "not related to vessel operations or their duties as security personnel."

Maersk Line Limited contracts with Trident Group in accordance with U.S. Coast Guard security directives, Speers said in the statement.

"Contracted security is part of anti-piracy protection plans to safeguard crews and vessels," Speers said. "In Maersk Alabama's case, she is persistently in high-risk areas since she provides feeder service to the east coast of Africa. The vessel was cleared to complete cargo operations, and she is now at anchor awaiting further instructions."

Senior Chief Petty Officer Daniel Tremper said the U.S. Coast Guard had been notified about the deaths of two U.S. citizens and is investigating, but "due to the nature of the investigation, that will be about all that we can provide right now."

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf confirmed the men were U.S. citizens. The Coast Guard is involved in the investigation because the Maersk Alabama is a U.S.-flagged ship, Harf said.

Police said the ship arrived in the Seychelles on Sunday with a 24-man crew and had been expected to leave Tuesday.

The bodies were found by a colleague who had gone to check in on one of the men in a cabin at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Seychelles police said.

In April 2009, four armed pirates attempted to hijack the Maersk Alabama 380 miles off the coast of Somalia. After the crew sank the pirates' vessel and foiled their efforts to take control of the container ship, the pirates took the ship's captain, Richard Phillips, hostage on a lifeboat. The incident ended three days later when Navy sharpshooters killed three of the pirates and captured the fourth. Phillips was unharmed.

The ship was attacked by pirates again later that year, but armed security personnel fought them off. Another attempt by pirates to board the ship, in March 2011, was thwarted when security personnel fired warning shots.
