Fifteen seafarers found shipwrecked off the coast of the island of Reunion. They were holding on to a small inflated raft with nothing in it. They had been stranded at sea for 16 days. The seafarers’ association of Reunion, ‘Les amis des marins’, have offered hospitality and have cared for these seafarers ashore.
Lawrence Ignace, President of ‘Les amis des marins’, reported that the rescued seafarers were from Indonesia. They had been adrift from the 3rd to the 19 th of November 2012. They were saved by a cargo ship called ‘Saga Enterprise’ and then brought to land by the naval authorities. The State of Reunion asked the seafarers’ association to take care of the crew upon their arrival on the island.
