BETHANY BEACH, Del. (AP) — The Coast Guard says a crew member jumped from a tanker to his death off the coast of Delaware after a stabbing that left a man dead and another person injured.

The Daily Times of Salisbury, Maryland (http://tinyurl.com/ms6mjho reports the violence happened late Thursday off Bethany Beach, in international waters.

The newspaper quoted Coast Guard officials as saying that the people involved were foreign nationals. Hong Kong authorities and the U.S. State Department are investigating.

Coast Guard spokesman Nick Ameen says authorities responded to a report of a stabbing aboard the Hong Kong-based Genco Challenger early Friday. Two people were flown to hospitals with stab wounds, and one later died.

The body of the crew member was found Friday afternoon, less than a mile from the vessel.

 In this Oct. 24, 2014 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey, the lava flow from Kilauea Volcano that began June 27 is seen as it crossed Apa?a Street near Cemetery Road near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Hawaii authorities on Saturday told several dozen residents near the active lava flow to prepare for a possible evacuation in the next three to five days as molten rock oozed across the country road and edged closer to homes. The USGS says the flow is currently about 160 to 230 feet (50 to 70 meters) wide and moving northeast at about 10 yards (nine meters) per hour. It's currently about six-tenths of a mile (one kilometer) from Pahoa Village Road, the town's main street. (AP Photo/U.S. Geological Survey)
