At least 273 lives were rescued by the Migrant Offshore Station (MOAS) responder crew this morning, September 14th. Despite the boats having taken on a lot of water and the African migrants falling into the sea, MOAS search-and-rescue crew was quick to deploy the CentiFloat in order to avoid another tragedy.
Safe aboard the Responder, post-rescue care was administered by the Italian Red Cross -Croce Italiana, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies medics.

Water was distributed as people began to recover and started to feel safe for the first time in a long while.
