Dockworker killed by line failure, others seriously injured

A serious dockside incident killed one dockworker and injured others at the Port of Longview Terminal 5, in Washington, early Thursday morning.

Reportedly a mooring line parted killing one dockworker, seriously injuring the vessel’s chief officer and injuring two others.

A report was received from the motor vessel Ansac Splendor at 1:46 a.m., reporting that a mooring line parted while the vessel was shifting at berth to facilitate the loading of cargo.

The Port of Longview shutdown operations for the entire port as a safety stand-down was put in place, which has allowed various federal, state and local agency investigations to take place. Checking line certification is a priority.
