Cadet died helping colleague
Wednesday 18 April 2012
A 14-year-old sea cadet fell to his death from the rigging of a training ship after he unclipped his harness to go to the assistance of another cadet, an inquest was told yesterday.
Jonathan Martin, of Shadoxhurst, near Ashford, Kent, fell from the sailing vessel TS Royalist in Stokes Bay, off Gosport, Hampshire, on 2 May 2010.
He was recovered by the ship's seaboat and taken by helicopter to the Queen Alexandra Hospital in nearby Portsmouth, where he was pronounced dead. Jonathan, who had been a cadet for two years, was described as "very confident" at heights.
