<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 2nd of November 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 2020_11_02-CM317 <i>Situation</i>: 65 people who had left from Libya were very close to Lampedusa at the last contact with the Alarm Phone <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Central Mediterranean Sea <i>Summary of the Case:</i> On November 2nd, 2020 the Alarm Phone was called by a boat in distress which had departed from Zuwara, Libya. The people on board told us there was a pregnant women and babies with them and that there was a hole in the boat and water entering. They had no life vests and asked urgently for rescue. We wrote an email to the Italian and Maltese authorities at 17.55h CET and passed their GPS position. We constantly spoke to the people on board and forwarded their updated position to the authorities. At 18h CET the people told us they saw a drone flying just above them and that they put on the light of their phones. Although rescue was demanded several times and the people were exhausted and afraid of death, their was none. But the travellers managed to proceed and at our last contact at 01.57h CET on 3rd November they were about 20nm off the coast of Lampedusa. Unfortunately it was not possible to get confirmation but we assume they arrived to Lampedusa.
