Alaskan State Ferry COLUMBIA Crew Member Injured

During boarding on November 2 at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal in Bellingham, WA, an Alaska State Ferry worker was injured when the cable of the passenger ramp she was lowering at the stern of 418-foot COLUMBIA snapped. Witnesses say that they heard a pop, the ramp shook, and then there was another pop. Then the ramp collapsed and fell onto some wooden pilings. According to reports, the worker was standing near the edge of the ramp, and when the ramp collapsed, she fell about twenty feet onto it, suffering multiple injuries. She was rushed to nearby St. Joseph's Hospital.

Sailing was delayed as an investigation of the ramp cable failure and circumstances of the accident began. The ramp is owned and maintained by the Port of Bellingham. There have been no updates as to the injured crew member's name or condition.
