Parents of dead “gorch fock” cadet file suit in karlsruhe

parents of dead 'gorch fock' cadet file suit in karlsruhe

Her lawyer, rainer dietz, told the dpa news agency on friday that the complaint had already been filed in karlsruhe. The parents wanted the former commander and the doctor of the "gorch fock" to be investigated on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter.

The officer in charge, jenny boken, fell into the north sea 15 kilometers off the island of norderney during a night watch. The public prosecutor’s office spoke of a tragic accident, but could not conclusively clear the cause. In another case, a female cadet fell to her death from the rigging in 2010.

Boken was unfit for deck duty, according to her medical records, but the doctor still let her serve, dietz said. "Through this breach of duty, he has increased the risk extremely." The commandant is accused by the parents that the young woman had not worn a life jacket and was unsecured in windy seven and 15 degrees water temperature.

All hands full

It was definitely carp fishing weather – the anglers who took part in this year’s king’s angling of the sommerach angling club agreed on that. A whole series of participants were successful.

One youngster and 17 adults took part in the jubilee fishing trip: for the 20. For the first time the king fishing took place at the anglersee. At 6.30 o’clock the competition began and lasted until 11 o’clock.30 o’clock. Water warden dittmar henkelmann explained why the anglers were so successful this time: "in the early morning we had fog on the water, there was no wind and the water is still relatively warm at this time of year. These are the best conditions to catch carp."

Around noon, the petrijunger then came one by one to weigh their caught fish. The biggest carp with 3200 grams was caught by stefan heinrich, who is the new angling king of sommerach for one year. He was followed in second place by harald venor with a 3000-gram carp, and third place went to pankraz bohm with his 2900-gram carp. Fourth place went to marco singer with two smaller carp.
