No, I am afraid not.
If there was no incident there is no claim.
Creating a risk alone is not claimable in English law.
In any event, having a heart attack does not create a risk. Even if the Captain became unwell or even died the ship could be sailed safely by others.
This just isn't a health and safety issue or any issue really.
Can I clarify anything for you?jo
