Heroic Devon fisherman dies two years after bomb blast

Tributes have been paid following the sudden death of a 39-year-old Devon fisherman who was hailed a hero after rescuing his crew when their boat was blown up by an unexploded World War II bomb. Lewis Mulhearn, 39, suffered head injuries, three broken vertebrae, a broken sternum, knee damage, a broken orbital bone and multiple facial lacerations after the Galwad-Y-Mor fishing boat he was on board sailed over a 290-pound explosive, which had lay dormant for 80 years, 20 miles north of Cromer, Norfolk, on December 15, 2020. Despite his injuries, the fisherman and captain of the ship coordinated the rescue of his six crew mates, who were also badly hurt. He also ensured he was the last man off the vessel.
