F/V Captain lost overboard

The owner/captain of F/V DARLIN’ MICHELLE, Theodore Lynch of Haines, AK, went overboard while shrimping about a mile west of Skagway Harbor, AK, during the early afternoon of October 23. Attempts to pull him back into the boat failed. According to an initial Alaska State Patrol report, Mr. Lynch’s son-in-law repeatedly threw a life ring to him in order to pull him in, but Mr. Lynch’s life jacket detached and came off of him during the third try at being pulled on board. He was unable to grab on and was lost.

Three Good Samaritan vessels, the Coast Guard, and Alaska State Troopers, and a Temsco Air helicopter crew searched a total of about twenty square miles before suspending their search.
