At 11h35 on Saturday the 15th of August, NSRI Mykonos duty crew were activated by the Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) following a request for medical assistance from the 270 meter MV SAMURAI reporting a 39 year old Indian crew member onboard suffering a suspected Heart Attack. The vessel was 25 nautical miles off-shore of Saldanha and heading towards Saldanha.
We launched our sea rescue craft SPIRIT OF FREEMASONRY accompanied by an SA Paramedic Services paramedic and rendezvoused with the motor vessel 9 nautical miles off-shore.
On arrival on-scene the patient was found to be stable, walking wounded, and brought aboard our sea rescue craft and brought to our sea rescue base at Mykonos. He has been transported to hospital by an SA Paramedic Services ambulance for further medical evaluation and treatment.
