An Indonesian sailor was killed and another crew member was seriously injured in an accident Monday when a cruise ship was docking at the island of Mykonos, authorities said.
The man was killed after a mooring line snapped, as the Greek-flagged Orient Queen was preparing to leave the island, the Mykonos port authority said. A second Indonesian sailor was hospitalized in serious condition.
The ship's operator, Cypriot-based Louis Cruise Lines, also operated the Sea Diamond cruise ship, which sank off the island of Santorini after striking well-marked rocks April 5. Nearly 1,600 people had been evacuated from that boat, while two French tourists remain missing, presumed drowned.
