Inspector Vincent Kaskeski was killed during a routine inspection of an oil freighter in the Delaware Bay.

Inspector Kaskeski was inspecting the freighter in bad weather and was swept off the ladder while disembarking. Boats launched from ship and shore failed to rescue him. The Coast Guard searched for two days to no avail and his body was found by fisherman five months later.

Inspector Kaskeski was survived by his wife and five children.
