<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 01st November 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 2020_11_01-CM313 <i>Situation</i>: A boat that had departed from Zuwara carrying 84 travellers probably reached Lampedusa.  <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Central Mediterranean Sea <i>Summary of the Case:</i> In the afternoon of Sunday the 1st of November, the Alarm Phone was called by a boat in distress carrying approximately 84 travellers, including 8 children, of which 3 babies, and 14 or 15 women. The boat had departed the previous evening from Zuwara. Communication was difficult but at 15h28 CET we managed to receive the GPS position. At 16h33 our shift team alerted the Italian and Maltese coastguards via email, passing on all the information we had. As we managed to maintain contact with the travellers at 17h23 we received updated GPS coordinates which we immediately passed on to authorities. At 20h40 the travellers sent us another GPS position which was close to Lampedusa, Italy. We later passed it on to Italian and Maltese coastguards. After this, we were no longer able to establish contact with the travellers however we believe that they might have reached Lampedusa as during our last conversation they were very close to the island and we saw news on twitter reporting that many boats had arrived on the island that day.  <i>Twitter Chronology</i> 01/11 18:05: https://twitter.com/alarm_phone/status/1322947984888418306  02/11 15:22: https://twitter.com/alarm_phone/status/1323269150052175873
