Indian Coast Guard Rescues Stranded Fishing Boat off Karnataka Coast


Karnataka, India: The Indian Coast Guard demonstrated its swift response capabilities on Tuesday, successfully rescuing a fishing boat stranded 215 nautical miles from Karwar, Karnataka. The Indian Fishing Boat (IFB) 'Rosary' had experienced engine failure and signaled for help on April 13th.

The ICG Ship Savitribai Phule responded immediately to the distress call. Despite challenging sea conditions, the ship established communication with the IFB 'Rosary'. Upon arrival, the ICG boarding team attempted to repair the fishing boat's engine but was unsuccessful.

In a collaborative effort, the Coast Guard District Headquarters (Karnataka) and the fisheries department coordinated the towing of the disabled boat towards Karwar. It was then safely transferred to another fishing vessel, IFB Shree Laxmi Narayan, for escort back to Karwar port.

This successful rescue operation highlights the Indian Coast Guard's dedication to maritime safety and their ability to respond rapidly to emergencies at sea.
