Live from the Sea-Watch 2: Treacherous calm

6:30 (4:30 UTC) in the morning announced the bridge that’s scary quiet. Hardly waves but only SAR and Warships in sight. At about 9 pm (7 UTC) the ‪Sea-Watch 2‬ course took a few points on the radar, whereby you doing actually emanated from fishing boats.

Shorty thereafter it goes very quickly. The calmness had proved treacherous: A boat, totally overloaded, was spotted. Together with Dignity 1 from Médecins Sans Frontières and the Astral of Proactiva Open Arms all people were rescued.

Children, women and some men were brought to the Sea Watch. 2 Several women collapsed on our deck. After initial medical treatment, the situation calmed down but quickly.

All persons are passed to the Dignity. 1 The crew is doing well.
