Indian Coast Guard Rescues Five Fishermen From A Sinking Indian Fishing Boat At Mid-Sea, Approximately 50 Km From Porbandar
The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) has rescued five fishermen from a sinking Indian fishing boat at mid-sea, approximately 50 km from Porbandar. The ICG’s action came in response to an SOS call. ICG Ship C-16 quickly arrived in the vicinity of the fishing boat in a short time and launched the rescue and support mission.

As the fishing boat was already 75 per cent flooded, it sank 12 km off Porbandar. The ICG ship rescued all five crew members and medical support was provided to them.

Earlier on March 20, the Indian Coast Guard carried out a rescue operation of eight crew members from a flooded boat after receiving a distress call off the coast of Kundapura in Karnataka.
