    Bulgarian Crewman Dies after Legs Severed by Anchor Chain of Super Yacht in Phuket



    .
    PHANGNGA – A 33 year old Bulgarian sailor has died in a shocking accident after the super-yacht Ocean Victory’s anchor chain almost severed off his legs in Thailand.

    Toni Hristov Kolev, 33, was working on board the Ocean Victory yacht when the accident took place at Mu Ko Similan National Park.

    It is understood the man was lowering the anchor when the chain wrapped around his legs, just above the knee, causing substantial wounds to his legs.

    Staff on board the 140-metre vessel tried to desperately save the man’s life but his injuries were too severe.

    The force of the chain tightening around his legs meant the victim lost a significant amount of blood and slipped into a coma, according to the Bangkok Post.

    The super yacht is understood to be owned by Russian steel billionaire Viktor Rashnikov and features six swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, gym, helipad and a helicopter hanger.

    Mr Rashnikov, 67, is a self-made billionaire in the Russian steel business. Forbes lists him as having personal wealth of US$4.3 billion (B150.61 billion), making him the 23rd richest man in Russia and the 403rd richest man in the world.

    The police confirmed that they have contacted the Bulgarian embassy to inform Mr. Kolev’s family of his tragic death.

    For someone who by his own admission is on the forum to 'bait' and provoke people that he thinks have mental health issues for his own amusement it's a bit odd that 'Henrie' is all self-righteous over some gallows humor.

    He doesn't really have a leg to stand on.

    One of the first things you learn working at sea is you never stand inside a "looped" chain or rope! The consequences can be dire! He really learnt the hard way!

    See video below of a Thai woman falling from her moped and having her legs chopped off by a big lorry.
