Indian navy undertakes swift search and rescue missions in Arabian Sea
In a swift response to SOS by an Indian vessel adrift in Arabian Sea, a naval helicopter was dispatched, early morning 17th May, for rescuing the stranded crew of Indian flagged Tug ‘Coromondel Supporter XI’, which was adrift North West of Mangalore, Karnataka.
Rough seas, due to cyclone Tauktae, had resulted in flooding of the vessel’s machinery compartments rendering it without propulsion and power supply, and the crew without any support. Four personnel rescued by the helicopter were transferred to a nearby Coast Guard vessel.
