Re: Suicide at Sea and captain charged
I still go back to the Jumpers personal responsibility to take care of himself. It strikes me the jumper did just about everything possible to force this situation. I wonít reintegrate all of his actions and decisions but it strikes me he did not take reasonable personal responsibility to take care of himself, let alone his own personal responsibility to the rest of the crew.
In the final instance, I believe none of the reports indicate he cried out for help after jumping.
Given the scanty and suspect info we have Iím of the mind to believe this fellow was negligent in seeking this crew position and greatly contributed to the final tragic outcome.
I see the Capt and crew as victims of this fellows poor life decisions.
