Last tuesday, a serious accident occurred on the beam-trawler Z-571 "Custos Deus". It happened 15 NM SE of Beachy Head. While a bent beam (?) was put on deck, the fisherman, age 39, was squeezed to death between the beam and the bulwark. A helicopter with a doctor arrived quickly at the scene, but reanimation was in vain. The Z-571 sailed immediately back with his body to Oostende. The fisherman came from Urk and leaves a wife and four children behind.


Wishing strength to his family, relatives and friends.
