Re: Suicide at Sea and captain charged
What a nightmare. But there are some troubling details, placing the captain in a weaker spot, such as not following the standard MOB protocol. Still, I hope that captain is exonerated because it wasn’t an accident and jumper was a clear risk to boat and crew. Self defense trumps following proper MOB protocol, at least IMO.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
