Put your mind for a minute from flushing box cocaine and jilted wives chasing government ministers.
Around 88 people are on a wooden vessel in Malta’s search and rescue area. They escaped from Libya and are now rudderless but within reach of rescue. Their boat, such as it is, is taking water. The sea is not calm where they are.
They need saving. Now.
How’s that for a distraction?
?️ ~88 lives at risk in #Malta SAR!
Alarmphone was alerted by people in distress. The wooden boat is exposed to strong wind and waves, water is entering. The people are in danger of capsizing at any moment.
Immediate rescue is needed! pic.twitter.com/VNnzJ1o1TL
