Accident lands Stephanie a month on Tristan da Cunha

An accident in the harbour at Tristan da Cunha forced a cruise ship zodiac driver to be left behind on the island for a month.

She’s now fully recovered and has been taken off by the container ship Cap Jackson.

The accident happened while she was transporting passengers ashore from the National Geographic cruise ship NG Explorer.

Tina Glass writes about the episode on the Tristan website. She says: “Stephanie had first been looked after in hospital by the medical team, and later moved to stay with an island family. She was soon well enough to enjoy island life, having been on the island for a month, although she just missed the annual Ratting day, by a few days.

“The community wishes her a full recovery and a safe journey home, to her family and friends.”
