Upon arrival, the male victim was unresponsive. He ended up transported to St. Luke’s Hospital. A police spokeswoman said specifics of the man’s condition are unknown at this time.

A spokesman for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration confirmed it opened an inspection at Sea Watch after being notified that a worker had been injured while working on a machine.

The spokesman said the inspection is ongoing, and seeks to determine if there were any violations of workplace safety standards in connection with this incident.

In January 2014, 35-year-old Victor Gerena died after he was caught in machinery while cleaning a shellfish-shucking machine at Sea Watch International. Sea Watch was later cited for seven serious safety violations as a result of that death.
