On February 2, a woman was found unconscious on a cruise ship and further tests revealed that excess gas levels were detected.
The 39-year-old woman was found unconscious in the bathroom of the Lady Rose – a three-level vessel owned by All Occasion Cruises. The medics were alerted but unfortunately, the woman was unable to be revived.
Excess gas levels
Australian Maritime Safety Authority, whose officers boarded the vessel on Monday, is investigating the incident alongside police and Fire and Rescue New South Wales.
Police say several detection tests conducted in the bathroom found gas levels in excess of safe operating levels. It is believed the Berowra woman collapsed in the bathroom where passengers on the boat had reported a “strange smell”.
Further forensic testing is expected to take place on the vessel which is now secured at the Sydney water police headquarters at Balmain. AMSA is investigating if any federal marine safety laws have been breached.
