A man has died after falling overboard from a fishing boat.
He was pulled from the water by crew members and airlifted to hospital but later died.
He fell from the King Challenger fishing boat off the coast of Shetland on Thursday.
The Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) has launched an investigation into his death.
A Maritime and Coastguard Agency spokeswoman said: “At 9.45am on Thursday June 23, the UK Coastguard received a Mayday broadcast from a 21-metre fishing vessel reporting a person overboard, 17 nautical miles south-west of Scalloway, Shetland.
“The person was recovered from the water by the crew of the fishing vessel.
“A UK Coastguard search-and-rescue helicopter based at Sumburgh was sent to the location.
“The casualty was winched on board and flown to Gilbert Bain Hospital. Lerwick coastguard rescue team prepared a safe landing area for the helicopter.”
Police confirmed the man later died and his next of kin are being informed. The boat is registered in Ballantrae, South Ayrshire.
An MAIB spokesman said: “The MAIB has deployed a team to conduct an investigation.”
A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal once the investigation is complete.
