    Why did this not make more news?????? I'd have hoped our news feed bot would bring up things like this, but it's the first I've heard of it as well.

            The newsbot as its name implies takes its feed from shiptalk.com where this article was not featured. The bot is simply installed as a test of popularity. It only updates the top 3 stories every 12 hours, therefore if they do not change it does not post anything. This is to prevent the board from becoming clogged with news like deck-officer

              What I find shocking is that this was not a top story, this is pretty big I'd have thought?

                  I agree, though they obviously don't like telling everyone a cadet has been killed on ship I guess. Alot of people jumping to conclusions and all that, although still it should have been more important than some articles that float about. My thoughts are with the family.

                    Sad, very sad indeed.

                    Be interesting to know fully what happened...

                      and the same article was published in most of the local Scottish papers, but nothing in the big ones,

                        Very sad news indeed - especially since he was due to leave ship. Was strange because one of my friends was onboard with him and I've seen videos of them doing karaoke etc.

                          Anyone know what the suspected cause of death was? I remember there was a big issue a few years back when a cadet died from heat exhaustion on a ship.

                            According to My friend Who has known this guy , the majority of his life (isle of lewis is a small community ) His family are still over in HK and Little is still known , Sounds like it could be sudden death syndrome . What a tragic way to go He only had one phase left .

                              If thats the case, it's sad but it's unavoidable and makes you realise that you must make the most of everyday. So when you arrive in a new port and the lads ask you if you want to go for a drink and wander around, just go for it! Make the most of life.
