Three crewmembers on an offshore platform vessel in the North Sea had to be rescued after they fell into the water during a rescue drill. The accident involved crewmembers on the offshore platform support vessel, Enea. The accident occurred at the Tern Field which is located just about 100 miles northeast of Shetland. The crewmembers were taking part in the routine launch of a rescue craft when something went wrong and all of them fell into the water. Two of the men quickly recovered, while the third was stuck under the boat. He was also rescued, and all crew members were airlifted to hospital. One of the men was seriously injured, and had to be airlifted in a stretcher. The Tern Field is operated by the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company. The Enea is a UK-registered offshore platform vessel owned by an Italian company. It has a capacity of twenty-six crew members. Offshore support vessels include supply boats, anchor handling vessels, support vessels for firefighting activities and other vessels.
