LPG tanker GAS AEGEAN had to interrupt her voyage from Lavera France to Cudallore, East India, and call Trincomalee port, Sri Lanka, after two of her crew died on board, on Jul 8 or earlier.

Both are reported as being officers, one 34-year old Ukrainian, another one 39-year old Russian.

Cause of their simultaneous deaths is unknown, although it may be presumed, that deaths weren’t the result of natural causes.

The ship anchored at Trincomalee anchorage in the morning Jul 11, bodies of deceased seamen are to undergo autopsy, police started an investigation.
