Police: Man trapped between boats is injured

A man who got caught between two boats in George Town harbour Friday afternoon was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

 

The man, 25, was working on a boat in the harbour between the North and South terminals, around 1.20pm Friday.

 

Royal Cayman Islands Police said the boat  began to drift towards another vessel. Police said the man attempted to get between the two boats to push them apart, but was crushed and fell into the water.

 

He was recovered from the water and taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital for treatment.

 

The incident is being investigated by the Joint Marine Unit, police said.
