Loose Cargo, part 2 is the second part of Chapter I in the plot of Return of the Obra Dinn. It takes place at the same time as Loose Cargo, part 1 and reveals the fate of an unfortunate stowaway.

While the ship is adding cargo in a Falmouth port, the presumed first stop after setting sail in London, a rope holding some cargo snaps and the pallet falls on seaman Samuel Peters. Unknown to the crew, the stowaway is hiding in one of the barrels and dies when the barrel falls over. The stowaway went completely unnoticed during the voyage, as their body remains in the barrel, which has been loaded into the bosun's store.
