Port Worker Survives Nine Days in Locked Container

A Bangladeshi port worker has been rescued after a terrible ordeal during which he was locked inside a container for over 9 days. However, the man's coworker, who had also been locked into the container with him, was not as lucky. The man, 30-year-old Din Islam told his rescuers that he and his fellow worker had become trapped inside the container while they were napping. The container was then loaded on a vessel which was bound for Singapore. The incident occurred on the 1 April. The men banged on the walls of the container to alert others to their predicament, but to no avail. No one heard them. After a few days, the coworker collapsed, and died. He was 40 years old. The survivor was only found when workers at the container terminal heard loud banging coming from inside the container. The survivor was rescued, and taken to a hospital. By this time, the body of the coworker had been badly decomposed. There is some speculation that the two men had intended to be trapped inside the container to make it abroad. According to Port authorities, it is a little difficult for a person become accidentally trapped inside a container. Meanwhile, in Chittagong Port where the container was loaded onto the Singapore-bound vessel, a four-member committee has been set up in order to investigate the incident.
