Two former Navy SEALs discovered dead aboard Captain Philip’s ship (VIDEO)

Two Navy SEAL operatives were discovered aboard Captain Philip’s Maersk Alabama cargo ship near the Seychelles Islands Wednesday.

The Maersk Alabama was the ship that was previously hijacked by Somalis during a 2009 pirate raid, and was the source of the recent movie “Captain Phillips.” Last Wednesday, Navy SEAL Jeffrey Reynolds and Mark Kennedy, both 44, were found dead aboard the vessel, L.A. Times reports.

“The cause of the death for both men is part of the ongoing investigation, but it was not related to vessel operations or their duties as security personnel,” said A.P. Moller-Maersk.

Little is known about the recent deaths aside from what’s documented in the film.

“Contracted security is part of anti-piracy protection plans to safeguard crews and vessels,” said Kevin N. Speers, a senior director for Maersk Line Limited. “In Maersk Alabama’s case, she is persistently in high-risk areas since she provides feeder service to the east coast of Africa. The vessel was cleared to complete cargo operations, and she is now at anchor awaiting further instructions.”
