Crew rescued after ten days at sea

Coast GuardWILLEMSTAD - The Coast Guard Caribbean (KWCARIB) rescued, in collaboration with the merchant ship Luminous Ace, a boat with four people on board on Wednesday night. The boat appeared to have been floating at sea for ten days when it was found.

The merchant ship passed the call of a small wooden boat with four crew members on to the Coast Guard. The search was directly put in motion. A Coast Guard patrol plane saw the boat through a smoke signal. The Luminous Ace brought the crew on board and then brought them to safety.


Of the four people on board two came from St. Vincent and two from Martinique. The crew has been transferred to the authorities.
