Rescue at Sea

Capt. Ervin Curtis ’80 (right) and other MMA alumni assisted in a recent rescue at sea.

大约在8月14日6点52分, 2021 the Crowley tanker Golden State was transiting the Gulf of Mexico bound for Cape Henlopen, DE满载原油. Mate on watch Jessica Faltings ’17 received a MAYDAY call from a small craft called “Three Musketeers.” Captain Curtis instructed 2nd Mate Kenneth Estes ’15 to contact the USCG on the emergency line for Sector Key West. 第三大副利亚姆·格里菲斯21号也参与了救援工作.

The 26-foot sport fishing boat was approximately 85 miles west of Dry Tortugas and 145 nautical miles west of Key West, FL. 天气状况恶劣,很难找到渔民. 渔民们报告说,有几艘船从他们身边驶过,却没有停下来, and the Golden State crew didn’t see them until they were about a mile away. With tropical storm Fred expected to pass by the vessel’s position in less than 24 hours, 很可能情况会更糟. 8点32分,小船在船边固定好了.

Survivors Luis M. 桑切斯-赫查夫里亚(左)和托雷斯C. Osvaldo, 漂流了四天,食物和水都少得可怜, 得到了医疗救助, hot food, 还有多余的船员舱休息和清理.

“感谢你们响应了这些遇难船员的号召,” USCG Sector Key West Command Center sent this message to the Golden State crew. “海况和即将到来的风暴使得行动非常困难, 但你们船员的非凡能力证明了这次营救是成功的. We are happy to see everyone in good spirits and safely aboard your vessel.”

  • 校友协助水手

    自从冠状病毒大流行开始, many of the merchant mariners who move 90 percent of the world’s goods from port to port have essentially been stuck at sea, unable to go ashore.

    由于港口对水手关闭,许多人无法回家. 有些人在海上呆了20个月, 根据国际海事组织, an organization that described the issue as an unprecedented humanitarian crisis.

    It was a good opportunity to help people who likely couldn’t get vaccinated...

    水手们的困境常常被大陆上的人所忽视. 但这并没有被两个缅因州人忽视, who began volunteering to give COVID-19 vaccinations to the crew members of cargo ships docked at Mack Point in Searsport, ME. “他们真的非常兴奋和感激,” Annie Dundon ’84, 西南港的医生助理, 她自己也当过水手, 这周她给水手打过疫苗.

    “It’s been tough on them,” said Penobscot Bay harbor pilot Skip Strong ’84, Dundon’s husband. “停下来,想想400比1的生活吧,000英尺长的钢制箱子里还有大约20个人, and that’s it. That’s your world. AG真人想为他们做尽可能多的事情.”

    水手们的困境并没有被两个缅因人忽视, who began volunteering to give COVID-19 vaccinations to the crew members of cargo ships docked in Searsport.

    Many of the sailors hail from countries with very low vaccine availability. 在缅因州有很多照片, Strong figured it was a good opportunity to help people who likely couldn’t get vaccinated for a long time otherwise. 并不是所有的水手都想要疫苗. 但来自泰国的65名水手, the Philippines, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, 荷兰很高兴地答应了.
