Indian Coast Guard rescues a stranded fishing boat off Karnataka

| @indiablooms | 17 Apr 2024, 02:29 pm

The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) on Tuesday successfully rescued Indian Fishing Boat (IFB) Rosary, which had encountered engine failure approximately 215 nautical miles from Karwar, Karnataka.

"ICG Ship Savitribai Phule had swiftly responded to a distress call from IFB Rosary on April 13, 2024 and, soon, established communication with the boat amidst adverse sea conditions," the statement issued by the Indian government.

Upon its arrival, the boarding team of the ICG ship made efforts to fix the seized engine, before the boat was rendered immobile.

The fishing boat was, then, towed towards Karwar with the help of Coast Guard District Headquarters (Karnataka), in collaboration with the Fisheries department.

It was handed over to IFB Shree Laxmi Narayan, which safely escorted it to Karwar port.
