Dramatic rescue in Indian Ocean

5 years ago35 views

In a dramatic rescue, EU Naval Force warship, FS Surcouf, on Monday (Jan 14) saved 10 Indian marines in the middle of the Indian Ocean, 30 miles off the Somali Coast, after their dhow started to sink into the deep ocean. The master of the Indian flagged dhow sent out a distress call after the dhow's engine failed and the vessel started letting in water. Upon hearing the distress call, FS Surcouf, which was conducting counter piracy patrols 26 nautical miles away, raced to assist the mariners, who by now had 'abandoned ship' in rough seas and climbed into the dhow's life raft. Upon arrival at the scene, a team of sailors from Surcouf helped to evacuate the men to the French warship.
