Sea Watch’s second coordinated search

Today, as part of the Sea-Watch’s second coordinated search and rescue patrol, the vessel encountered a migrant boat with approximately 100 persons on board. As first on scene the Sea-Watch distributed water and liaised with relevant coastguard authorities with respect to the migrant people’s rescue. Attending to those in distress, Medecins-Sans-Frontier’s (MSF) vessel, Bourbon Argos, was purportedly making her way to the scene in order to assist with the rescue operation.

The above incident represents a milestone in the Sea-Watch project and symbolises the very real contribution the Organisation can make to saving life at sea.
