Philippino seaman rescued off Limassol coast

Search and Rescue Coordination Centre in Larnaca

A 42-year-old sailor aboard a commercial ship off the coast of Limassol was picked up by a port police boat on Friday afternoon after showing signs of having suffered a heart attack.

In a statement, the joint rescue coordination centre (JRCC) said it was informed of a man aboard the Antigua-Barbuda flagged ship ‘Lucy Borchard’, which had been sailing 5.5 miles south-east of Limassol port, showing signs of a heart attack.

Triggering the ‘Nearchos’ national search-and-rescue plan, the JRCC despatched a port police boat to pick up the 42-year-old Philippino sailor.

He was transported to Limassol port, where an ambulance picked him up and rushed him to Limassol general hospital.
