Funeral For Panamanian Mariner

Panama Flagged VesselsThe rigid discipline that characterizes the Panama International Maritime University succumbed yesterday afternoon, by frank shed tears during the funeral for the cadet Dayra Wood Pino, 22, who died at sea, aboard the Panamanian flagged vessel the Valencia, on August 4. Her friends, fellow students and teachers stopped to say goodbye to the Marine Engineering student, who died in circumstances that have not yet been clarified.

The funeral mass was held at the Virgen del Carmen church in the city of Colon, and her remains were buried in the Memorial Park Cemetery. Her coffin had a Honor Guard composed of classmates (2011) of the victim.

Alejandro Pino, 86 and Dayra's grandfather, asked the crew to be questioned and to explain how his granddaughter died. She stayed in the home of an uncle in Panama during her studies, and each time she returned to Colon she visited Mr. Alexander. (Critica)

Editor's Comment: According to the initial reports she was supposedly working in the engine room when she got caught up in the machinery and was killed. There was some controversy, because she died in Mexican waters and the ship's captain put her body in the ship's freezer, and delayed reporting her death for weeks.
