Spanish Crew Rescued

16 crewmen were rescued from a Spanish trawler which sank off the west coast.
The alarm was raised around 8am after the 'Centuaro 1' got into difficulties around 500km off Eagle Island, Co Mayo.

The crewmen were picked up by a sister vessel, the Anagandon, following a joint operation between Malin Head and Clyde Coastguards.

The vessel is expected to dock at Killybegs late tomorrow evening. None of the crew is in need of medical assistance.

Good news to hear that all are safe.

This kind of stuff scares me for you. It would be horrible to ever get news you are lost at sea. I get teary eyed just thinking of it.
