Hansa rescues stranded couple

September 16 - The crew from Hansa Heavy Lift's HHL Elbe has rescued a couple from a dinghy in the Red Sea after spotting their distress flares.

Stefan Jerkander and his wife, Svetlana Salnikova-Jerkander, took to their rescue dinghy after their catamaran, Cattarina, sank off the Sudanese coast during a voyage from Split in Croatia to Phuket in Thailand.

HHL Elbe was on its way from Porto Marghera, Italy, to the port of Kandla, India, when its crew spotted a white rubber rescue boat with a blinking flashlight and two people on board after seeing two red distress flares.

The vessel was brought alongside the dinghy and held his position whilst a heaving line and buoy were sent out to the stranded seafarers and they were brought aboard, where the couple were given first aid.
