<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 16th of November 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 2019_11_16-WM529 <i>Situation</i>: 27 men leave Dahkla and are rescued to the Canary Islands <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Western Mediterranean <i>Summary of the Case:</i> At 20:15h CET on 16 November we were alerted by a relative to a group of 27 men who had left Dahkla at 02:00h two days previously. They were heading for the Canary Islands. The group were mainly from the Maghreb, but included two people from Bangladesh. As there had been no news of the travelers for two days, we immediately called the Spanish search and rescue organisation, Salvamento Maritimo. The coastguard were already involved in the rescue of five boats, but they took the information and asked us to follow up with an email. We duly sent them the information electronically. Overnight, we were not able to get any more information about the boat, but the next morning the Salvamento Maritimo wrote to us to say that they had rescued a boat of 27 men. They describe them as being from the Maghreb. We asked for clarification about the Bangladeshis, but before we received a response, our contact got in touch to let us know that the travelers had arrived safely. Boza, welcome to Europe.
