<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 3rd November 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 20201103-CM321 <i>Situation</i>: Alarm Phone alerted to boat in distress from Zuwara; rescued and brought to Lampedusa <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Central Mediterranean <i>Summary</i> On Tuesday the 3rd of November 2020 at 05.48 CET our shift team was called directly by a group of around 100 travellers, including women and children. They told us that they had left from Zuwara on a wooden boat the previous day at 04.00. They had two engines of which one was broken, and they were running out of petrol. They also gave us a position on the phone, showing that they were in the Maltese search and rescue zone, very close to the border of the Italian search and rescue zone. At 06.18 we sent an email to the Italian and Maltese rescue authorities passing on all the information we had about the travellers. In addition, at 06.48 we called the Maritime Rescue Coordination Center in Rome, who confirmed that they had received our email, but refused to give us any information about ongoing search and rescue efforts. At 06.53 we spoke to the travellers again, and they told us that a fast boat was coming up behind them. After this point, we were no longer able to reach the travellers. At 15.30 a relative of one of the travellers informed us that the boat had been rescued and brought to Lampedusa.
