NORFOLK (AP) -- A Norfolk-based Navy ship came to the aid of a Panamanian-flagged vessel near Yemen after its crew suffered a cargo-handling accident.
The guided-missile destroyer USS Winston S. Churchill responded to a distress call on Monday.
The Navy says one of the Panamanian ship's crew members was killed in the accident and another required advanced medical care.
The Winston S. Churchill conducted a medical evaluation, transporting the injured crew member by helicopter to a medical facility in Oman for treatment.
The ship is currently conducting counter-terrorism and maritime security operations in the Middle East.
