VLCC Saves Two Lives

The Master and crew of the World Tankers VLCC Kolossi carried out a remarkable rescue off the Indian coast earlier this month. They picked up two fishermen from the sea. The men had survived a gruelling 12 hours in the water. Sadly a third crew member was missing.

The fishermen were spotted 15 miles off Quilon, Kerala, in the early afternoon of September 5. They had survived by clutching a foam fishing box. The two survivors were helped aboard and given immediate assistance. They made a rapid recovery from their ordeal, having spent the night adrift in the open sea. They explained that their boat had capsized in heavy swell conditions.

The rescue operation ended in a rendezvous with a Coast Guard vessel, the transfer of the two survivors and their safe return ashore.
