Phuket Gazette reports today 24th February



Australian teenager dies after tragic boating mishap

MY Jemasa is the largest of the vessels pictured in this photo taken yesterday.

PHUKET CITY: The parents of a 16-year-old Australian girl injured in a yacht accident last Wednesday took the decision to switch off her life support last night.

Miss Ali van Os, from Darwin, died in Bangkok Hospital Phuket at around 6 pm surrounded by family members.

She was hit in the head by a mooring rope tied to the “superyacht” MY Jemasa, which was berthed in Yacht Haven Marina in Mai Khao, Thalang disrict.

Miss van Os had rushed towards the 50-meter yacht to get a closer look after it docked, but when a crew member accidentally touched the throttle the enormous pleasure craft surged, causing the rope to snap.

Miss van Os was rushed to Bangkok Hospital Phuket in a coma and had lost a lot of blood. Subsequent tests showed her brain was no longer functioning.

Ali van Os had been on holiday in Phuket with family members, including her mother, author Joanne van Os, and father, Lex Silvester, a barrister.

Verry said accident most wonder how this could happen?

I don't know the full details!

If the mooring line broke/snapped you wonder why you would use light mooring line

if that is the case i would very upset why they did not use the right strength line (saving on cost i hope not!)

Cutting short a live in a said way i feel for the family and people

Hello there, we don't know the details of the mooring lines that were used. At this stage we have to accept the reports of the accident at face value, until the official investigation is completed,we should understand a series of events took place, The loss of life is greatly regretted.

A ship of some 160ft needs careful berthing, crew on the pontoons also have a role to play in ensuring safety, The hawsers and mooring lines all have characteristics that are both positive and negative. CLICK
