A report by Bloomberg says the incident occurred March 25  and involved the second hijacking attempt within three days on Eagle Bulk Shipping’s Avocet.

The video footage was captured by a helmet cam by one member of the four member security team, provided by Virginia Beach, Va,, based Trident Group , Inc.

The Bloomberg report (with much second-guessing on the team’s action from people who weren’t being shot at with AK47’s and RPG’s) can be accessed HERE.
