Three-plus years after drowning deaths, Coast Guard report unfinished

The U.S. Coast Guard still hasn’t finished a report on a 2011 vessel collision that resulted in the drowning of three Omega Protein workers in the Mississippi Sound.

For more than two years, the Coast Guard has been reviewing four safety recommendations included with the accident report. Dawn Patterson, chief of the Coast Guard’s data division in Washington, said the report will be released only after the safety recommendations are finalized.

She said the report was sent for review in May 2012 to the Coast Guard’s Eighth District, which is headquartered in New Orleans and covers 26 states.

“It’s not releasable,” she said, “and I don’t know when it will be released.”
