The Cowes floating bridge remains out of service today (Thursday) following an accident that occurred onboard yesterday.
The council say,
“A 37-year-old man from Newport was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital, following the incident just after 1pm. At the time, the man was investigating an issue in the vessel’s engine room.
“This issue now needs to be looked at before the service can resume. The police cordon has been lifted and council staff are back on board. The condition of the member of staff is currently unknown.”
A passenger launch is in operation.
Our thoughts are with the injured member of floating bridge staff.
The council tweeted this:
The floating bridge is back in service following yesterday's accident. The member of staff involved remains in hospital.
Thank you to everyone for their kind messages.
