Ocean Viking informs LYJRCC (copying ITMRCC, MTJRCC and EUNAVFOR MED) by email about possible distress situation and that 2 RHIB will be launched:

… while  Ocean Viking was proceeding north Ocean Viking spotted a rubber boat in the water, possibly in distress
The boat seems to be overcrowded and people have no lifejackets.

Ocean Viking is going to launch our RHIBs and investigate and start stabilisation.

We will keep you updated
