Sources said Saeed was getting on the Captains' Room of the Panama Flag Carrier MV Precious at around 9:30am, but he fell off in the sea slipping the staircases since the sea was turbulent.
Official of local agent of the ship - Prominent Shipping Line - Mohammad Harun said the master of the ship threw life jacket to Saeed, but he could not catch the jacket for the rough tides.
