Live from the Sea-Watch 2: 240 persons from West Africa rescued

Another busy day: In the early morning our crew spotted 3 boats with approx. 240 persons from West Africa, mostly Nigeria.

Among again many women and also small children. Together with the Dignity 1 from Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières all people were rescued.

 


 

One of our doctors explains the state of mission while speedboat crew is accompanying the third boat of the day to the Dignity 1 for evacuation.

The rubber boat still had a working engine.

Yesterday something had caught up in the propeller. Our diligent divers removed it with snorkeling and breath-hold.

Also they could test the underwater kit of our board camera.
