On Thursday, 09/03/2017, the containership “Heinz Schepers” rescued two fishermen from distress after their engine broke down. Due to bad weather and heavy pitching the fishing boat floated away from Tunisian coast. To that time MV “Heinz Schepers” was on anchorage waiting for berth in Rades. Both could safely be embarked and given first aid. On the next morning both fishermen could be safely handed over to the Tunisian Coast Guard.
