<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 17rd March 2021</b> <i>Case name</i>: 2021_03_17-WM572 <i>Situation</i>: 50 travellers on their way from Dakhla to the Canary Islands rescued by Salvamento Maritimo, but one person died after falling in the water. <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Western Mediterranean <i>Summary</i> On Wednesday the 17th of March at 28.00 CET, the Alarm Phone was alerted by a relative to a group of 50 travellers, 20 women, 20 men and 10 children. The travellers had left from Dakhla on Sunday the 14th of March on a white rubber boat, and the relatives had not heard from them since their departure. We called the Spanish search and rescue organisation Salvamento Maritimo and gave them the information we had. They told us that they had rescued a boat matching this description. On the 20th of March in the evening, the relatives confirmed that they had spoken to the travellers who had arrived to the Canary Islands. However, they reported that one person from the group had fallen into the water during the crossing. Even though the other travellers managed to rescue them out of the water, Cisse Adamo died on the boat. Our solidarity and thoughts are with Cisse’s family and friends, and with the other travellers who were involved in this traumatising incidence.
