At about 1806 on 14 August 2004, three seamen on the forecastle head of the container ship Aotearoa Chief were struck by a wave that broke over the ship's port bow. One man was thrown against the windlass and mooring machinery and suffered injuries from which he later died. Another sustained severe lacerations to one leg while the third man was unhurt.
