Deaths have occurred in the fish holds of fishing boats, has lead to multiple deaths, first guy goes down and looses consciousness and then another guy jumps in to help and the same thing happens.
A good friend of mine had this happen to him on a tanker ship, didn't follow protocol and almost died.

Not available anymore?...

Definitely be careful like everyone else stated. If you plan on doing anything with it, consult with someone experienced in Confined Space Safety so that a plan can be developed to enter and I would sniff the space with an air quality monitor to ensure it's safe to breathe down there.
