Three of them were accompanied by Sea-Watch. One boat was already sinking at our arrival which forced us to immediately take people on board. Women and children were transferred to our RHIB, other passengers were taken by Proactiva Open Arms. Everyone was brought to land safely. The passage of the Aegean is still life-threatening and must be replaced by safe escape routes.
