    Guy died on one of the ships at the Naval Base. Fell down an elevator shaft, 8 decks. Heard that he was 24 years old, and new to working on ships. The kid was a tank cleaner, which is a horrible job.

    Oh yeah, shit is really dangerous. Safety is a really big issue at work, so someone dying is big news.
