Six workers have been poisoned by carbon monoxide on board a bulk carrier that was docked at Napier port, New Zealand. The incident happened on Monday 30th April. 

The workers from Stevedoring Company ISO were working onboard bulk carrier, Nord Yilan. The details of the accident are still unclear but reports earlier today indicate that all six have now been discharged from hospital. 

Nord Yilan was chartered by Emslaw One timber company, and was in the process of loading logs when the men inhaled carbon monoxide said to have been emitted by a turbo motor.
