Crew trapped on Baltimore ship, weeks after bridge collapse

Crew trapped on Baltimore ship, weeks after bridge collapse
15 Mayıs 2024 11:38

Darrel Wilson, a spokesperson for Synergy Marine, the Dali’s Singapore-based management company, told the BBC that the crew is “holding up well” and that company representatives dispatched to Baltimore have been “checking on them constantly, from day one.”

“All their needs are being met to the best of our ability,” Mr Wilson said, adding that shipments of catered Indian food have been sent aboard to allow the cooks to rest.

Various religious representatives, including Hindu priests, have been providing services and emotional support to those aboard.

“It’s small things to us,” he said. “But those are big morale boosters.”

Mr Wilson, however, said he was unable to provide a timeline for the crew to disembark, noting that – in addition to the investigations – “nobody knows the ship better than they do” and that they are integral for it to function.

Mr Messick said he expects to be able to board the ship to provide “emotional support” as soon as it is moved out of the shipping channel.

After that, he believes that small groups of sailors – perhaps five at a time – will be eligible for shore passes, albeit with heavy restrictions on their movements.

They will, for example, likely be required to have an escort for the duration of their time on shore.

“I’m trying to find out what the crew wants to do. I don’t want to take them to a baseball game if they are going to be bored,” he said. “So I’ve reached out to a local cricket club to see if they can organise a match.”

Some crew members, such as the ship’s captain, expressed an interest in being “somewhere contemplative, in nature”, Mr Messick said.

“We’re just trying to help them breathe a bit,” he said. “They’ve been stuck on board this whole time. They need to enjoy a little more of the freedom that we enjoy every day.”
