SEA RESCUE – Richards Bay – Wednesday, 20th May. Patient Evacuation off ship:
At midday on Wednesday the 20th of May, NSRI Richards Bay duty crew were placed on alert by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) to prepare for the arrival of the bulk carrier CANON TRADER I, sailing from India to Richards Bay, and reporting a 25 year old Filipino crewman onboard suffering dehydration and stomach cramps.
