Season: 4, Episodes: 1, Faction: Freighter
Hendricks was the Australian at the helm of the freighter Kahana.
On the freighter
After Michael repaired the freighter’s engines, Desmond instructed Hendricks to navigate the freighter to the Island. Hendricks refused to come within five miles of the coast, citing radio intereference on his fathometer which prevented him from seeing the reef. (“There’s No Place Like Home, Part 1”)
Hendricks presumably was killed when the Kahana blew up, as a result of Keamy’s death. (“There’s No Place Like Home, Part 3”)

The saltwater or estuarine crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) is the largest of all living reptiles. It is found in suitable habitats in Northern Australia, the eastern coast of India and parts of Southeast Asia.
In northern Australia (which includes the northernmost parts of the Northern Territory, Western Australia and Queensland) the Saltwater Crocodile is thriving, particularly in the multiple river systems near Darwin (such as the Adelaide, Mary and Daly Rivers, along with their adjacent billabongs and estuaries) where large (6 metre +) individuals are common. The Australian Saltwater Crocodile population is estimated at somewhere between 100,000 and 200,000 adults.
