From the vesseltracker web site on 8 November 2010:
"A fatal accident happened aboard the "Gorch Fock" during a sail training exercise in the port of Salvador de Bahia on Nov 7, 2010. A female crew member from Niedersachsen fell out of the rigging onto the deck and suffered fatal injuries. The ship had entered the port on Nov 2 and had an exchange of the officer cadets there. The ship was scheduled to leave for Uruguay on Nov 17."
