Yacht crew member on MY Iroquois dies


A yacht crew member on M/Y Iroquois apparently committed suicide onboard on Monday in Boston, according to several media sources.

The yacht, docked at The Marina at Rowes Wharf in Boston, belongs to Boston Red Sox and Liverpool Football Club owner John Henry.  The Red Sox’s Web site posted the news yesterday and stated that the only people onboard were fellow crewmembers. The site posted the following information:

“Earlier today, a crewmember on the vessel M/Y Iroquois apparently took his life aboard the vessel docked at 30 Rowes Wharf,” the Red Sox said in a statement. “Mr. Henry and the members of the Boston Red Sox are saddened by the news and send deepest condolences to his family.”

“The man was 28 to 30 years old, police told the Associated Press. When firefighters and police arrived at the yacht, they found him in cardiac arrest and attempts to revive him were unsuccessful. It wasn’t clear who called authorities and police did not release the man’s name. The manner of death also was not released.”

The Triton will share information as it becomes available.
