INCREDIBLE - Footage shows rescue as ship sinks off the Isle of Lewis

23 Jan 2015

Five people were rescued from an Irish fishing vessel this week as the ship foundered in the waters off Scotland.

The Coastguard was notified at approximately 11 a.m. Tuesday that the Iuda Naofa, a 23-meter Irish fishing vessel, was taking on water 48 miles north of the Butt of Lewis.

The Coastguard Rescue helicopter was sent and dropped a salvage pump onto the Iuda Naofa, but the vessel became swamped and started to sink.

The helicopter crew was able to airlift two of the crew onto the nearby sister fishing vessel, the Star of Hope. The other three crew were transferred by helicopter to the Western Isles hospital, where they are being treated for mild hypothermia.

Coastguard Duty Watch Manager, Paul Tunstall commented: “The weather conditions on scene were very rough seas with southerly force 6 winds, evacuating the five crew swiftly and safely before the vessel went down was a great achievement.”
