A marine pilot lost his life on 18 July at the port of Yalova in Turkey after falling off from a pilot ladder straight into the water.

At around 1300 hours on Monday, pilot Cafer Kiribrahim was reportedly at the Ciftlikkoy anchorage area off Yalova. He was rendezvousing with a tanker named Alhena. Cafer’s pilot boat had come alongside the tanker and he transferred over to the pilot ladder. However, as he reached the ladder, he fell into the water, per local media.
