At 03:12h the travellers shouted for help and the shift team tried to explain that they should call Italy by themselves. The last GPS position was given at 03:52h, afterwards the contact to the people on board broke. At 14:27h Alarm Phone called MRCC Rome but they refused to give any information. Only through friends on Lampedusa the shift team got to know that the people landed on the island.
