Hartmann Reederei – gas carrier MAIDO rescues 8 fishermen
On July 25 at 07:48 hrs local time, during her passage to Anyer, LPG carrier MAIDO sighted a capsized fishing boat, with people on top of the boat’s bow.
MAIDO reduced speed and made a full turning circle to commence a rescue operation. The crew started to prepare the pilot ladder and the cargo net on port side. When reaching the fishing boat, the MAIDO crew threw the heaving lines to assist the fishermen to reach the pilot ladder and cargo net. One by one, the fishermen boarded the vessel on their own via the pilot ladder.
After the fishermen were on board, the crew of MAIDO observed that the fishing boat was sinking quickly; finally, it sunk completely.
All in all, 8 persons have been rescued, and they are all healthy though scared. It was reported by them that one crew member was missing, but they did not know when and where he went missing. Searching of the location of the sunken fishing boat was without any success, the last missing crew member could not be found.
