On June 28, a tragic discovery was made aboard the general cargo vessel Silver Lake when a seafarer was found dead. The incident came to light while the ship was docked at Teesport in the UK.

The deceased, a Filipino national, was discovered in his cabin with a rope around his neck, indicating an apparent suicide as there were no suspicious marks or injuries. However, no suicide note was located among his belongings.

The crew member's family suspects that there may have been other factors contributing to his death. His wife speculates that it might be related to his work or potentially foul play.

The seafarer had been working as an electrician on various ships for eight years, according to his wife. She noted that he was planning to leave the ship and return home for the birth of their child in November.

Following the incident, UK authorities were set to perform a post-mortem examination to establish the precise cause of death.

Pacific Basin Shipping HK Ltd, the Hong Kong-based company that owns and operates Silver Lake, expressed their condolences to the seafarer's family and stated that they are cooperating fully with the ongoing investigation.
