A boat with two people on board sank off the coast of Limassol on Tuesday afternoon, with the coast guard staging a rescue.

According to the Search and Rescue Coordination Center (JRCC), at 4:15, the coast guard received information about a small vessel with two people on board sinking in the maritime area of Limassol bay, near the fish farms.

“The JRCC activated the national plan Nearchos by mobilising the coast guard’s patrol boat Morphou, which, after rescuing the two people in danger, transported them to the Limassol port and handed them over to an ambulance of the state health services (Okypy),” JRCC said after the incident said.

The conditions of the two people rescued are still unknown.
