Fisherman Dies After Falling Overboard Near King Cove

By | May 3, 2013 - 4:40 pm

A crew member from the 42-foot F/V Taurus died after falling overboard near King Cove Friday morning. A Good Samaritan vessel found the deceased, but the Coast Guard isn’t releasing the crew member’s name or any details about the incident until next of kin have been notified.

Petty Officer Jonathan Klingenberg says vessels from King Cove participated in the search, along with two Coast Guard aircraft.

The F/V Taurus is homeported in King Cove.

This is  a developing story. Please check back here for updates. 

Correction: An earlier version of this story erroneously identified the vessel as the 58-foot Taurus homeported in Dutch Harbor. It is the 42-foot Taurus, homeported in King Cove.
