“Australian nurse Carol Nagy rushes an eight-month-old Nigerian baby to the clinic on the #Phoenix, a search and rescue vessel in the #Mediterranean Sea jointly run by #MSF and #MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station). Earlier this month, the Phoenix and another MSF search and rescue ship, the Bourbon Argos, worked together with the Italian coast guard to complete the most complex and dangerous rescue so far.
The #boat was extremely overcrowded and listing from side to side. The only way to stabilise it was to have those who could swim to jump into the water and hold on to large flotation devices deployed by the Phoenix. Everyone was extremely relieved when the 604 people were bought on board the boats safely (289 on the Phoenix and 315 on the Bourbon Argos). © Gabriele François Casini/MSF” By doctorswithoutborders on Instagram.
