Des Allemands man dies after fall from barge
Johnathan Luna, 23, fell into the water around 11 p.m. Sunday night near Algiers.
Jeb Tate, public information officer for the New Orleans Emergency Medical Services, said that Luna was still in the water when barge workers called the police. Once Luna was brought back on board the barge, EMS workers met the barge at a designated rendezvous point.
ďWhen our medics got on the scene, the barge workers were already treating the patient to the best of their abilities,Ē Tate said.
New Orleans EMS workers transported Luna in critical condition to the Louisiana State University Trauma Center where he died early Monday morning, according to the Orleans Parish Coronerís Office.
Just hours before he fell from the boat, Luna wrote on his Facebook wall: ďBack on the boat tonight hope itís an easy night.Ē
