Another tragedy evaded as 273 African migrants are rescued today in the Mediterranean


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.
