German patrol boats saved 15 migrants
On Apr 28, 2016, 15 migrants were rescued off Samos by the "Uckermark" and "Börde" in the frame of the Frontex-mission "Poseidon Rapid Intervention". Upon the alert at 4.55 p.m. both ships headed for the position with high speed. One officer aboard the "Uckermark" then remarked several persons who had saved themselves on steep rocks north of Samos and landed three crew members with a daughter boat under dangerous conditions. They found out, that it was a Syrian family, among them three smalll children and one old woman, all in bad physical state. Two more officers were embarked with water and medical supplies, while members of the Greek fire brigade were approaching the site from the shore. Within one hour, all could be recovered from the rocks and transferred onto the "Börde" and later taken to Vathy aboard the "Uckermark". German report with photos: www.presseportal....

An Israeli man was medevaced from the "Golden Iris" which was headed to Larnaca early on Apr 29, 2016, off the coast of Paphos, after suffering pulmonary edema. The Larnaca Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) was alerted at 6.55 a.m. by the “Golden Iris” while en route from Rhodes to Larnaca when it made the call. The patient was transferred to Paphos by a marine police patrol boat and was taken to the town’s general hospital. The Israeli Embassy in Nicosia was notified, as was the Haifa JRCC, to inform his relatives.
