Worker injured after fall from ship at Westshore Terminals in Delta

DELTA (NEWS1130) – A worker is in Vancouver General Hospital in serious condition after falling off a ship docking at Berth 2 of Westshore Terminals Monday afternoon.

“He’s breathing, he’s talking, he’s conscious, but he’s certainly injured,” says Denis Horgan with the terminal. The extent of the man’s injuries aren’t known.

Several workers jumped into action according to Horgan: “Two of our foremen who were at the thing actually jumped in and rescued the gentleman.”

He adds it’s been over ten years since someone has fallen into the water at the Delta facility.

The Transportation Safety Board is now investigating because the vessel is under Federal jurisdiction.
