Nine rescued in Bahrain marine excavator accident


Nine crew stranded on a leaking marine excavator that was hit with a technical fault have been rescued by Bahrain’s Coast Guard.

A “technical fault” in the pump led to a water leak on the marine excavator, which saw Bahrain’s Coast Guard, supported by the Royal Bahrain Naval Force, launch a night-time mission to rescue the nine workers on board.



Four vessels were immediately rushed to the leaking marine excavator to carry out the rescue.

The marine excavator was towed to shallower waters, where a technician fixed the pump, but this only partially fixed the leak, according to Bahrain’s state news service.

Coast Guard Commander, major general Alaa Siyadi, said the rescue operation has been completed successfully, with no injuries reported.



An initial investigation found that the cause of the faulty pump was the due to a “lack of commitment” to safety standards by the excavator’s crew.
