<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 3rd of November 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 20201103-CM318 <i>Situation</i>: contact to the boat got lost very close to Lampedusa, people seemed to have arrived there <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Central Mediterranean Sea <i>Summary of the Case:</i> On November 3rd in the early morning at 02:13h CET the Alarm Phone got informed about a boat in distress with 74 people that had started from Zawiya on the 1st November. The people reported the boat was leaking and asked for help. As their GPS position was located in Maltese SAR zone we informed the Maltese authorities via email as we couldn’t reach them on the phone. The travellers kept sending us their positions and were seemingly moving towards Lampedusa, so we also informed Italian authorities. We kept contact with the boat the whole night till 6.20h CET on November 3rd, when they were at about 2 hours from Lampedusa. After that their phone was not reachable any more. We assumed they arrived there as they already could see the lights of the island at our last call.
