At about 0840 on 21 April 2005, a crewman on board the bulk carrier Hui Shun Hai suffered severe burns after pressurised hydraulic oil ignited while he was working on a deck hydraulic pipe. Immediately following the blast, he ran to the ship's side and jumped into the sea.

He was recovered from the water and evacuated by helicopter to the Western Australian town of Carnarvon. As a result of the explosion, he suffered burns to about 40 per cent of his body. The severity of his injuries resulted in his later transfer to the Royal Perth Hospital.
