Crew death on Liverpool boss' yacht

A man is thought to have committed suicide on a yacht belonging to Liverpool FC's owner John Henry.

The man, believed to be between 28 and 30, was discovered by US emergency crews in cardiac arrest, but attempts to save him failed.

It is thought the man - whose identity has not been released - was a crew member working on the vessel which was docked at Rowes Wharf in Boston, near the city's financial district.

Mr Henry, who also owns the baseball team Boston Red Sox, was said to be saddened by the news.

It is thought the man had committed suicide, according to a statement on the Red Sox website.

It said: "Earlier today, a crew member on the vessel, M/Y Iroquois, apparently took his life aboard the vessel docked at 30 Rowes Wharf.

"Mr Henry and the members of the Boston Red Sox are saddened by the news and send deepest condolences to his family.

"Apparently only crew members were on board the vessel when the incident occurred."
