Mangaluru: A fisherman who had fallen overboard from a fishing vessel at high seas was rescued by a passing merchant ship under directions from New Mangalore Port with assistance from Indian Coast Guard on Thursday August 16th.

On Thursday evening around 4 pm, New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) received a report that a fisherman had fallen overboard, at a location situated 12 nautical miles off Mangaluru. NMPT officials immediately located a merchant ship ‘MT Pacific Lagoon’ which was passing close to the distress area and directed the ship to recover the man who had fallen overboard.

‘MT Pacific Lagoon’ complied with the request and rescued the man. The vessel was then directed to approach NMPT harbour mouth for disembarkation of the rescued fisherman. The rescued fisherman has been identified as Nagraj and  had reportedly fallen overboard from the fishing boat ‘Krishan Maruti’.
