|Naufrage de l'AIGLE D'OCEAN's sinking, 20 aout 1975, Port Burwell, Hudson Strait.
As the vessel is almost top side down, the master standing on the keel is the last man to jump in the liferaft. Unfortunatly, the Chief engineer did'nt want to hurt his collegues alreardy in the raft and elected to jump in the water instead on the raft. His body was recovered two hours later. The vessel sank minutes after this last dramatic picture.
