(CMR) Two Cayman men have been safely rescued after being out to sea since late Wednesday afternoon. CMR sources shared that shortly before 10:00 pm Thursday night they were bringing them off off the coast of Little Cayman. The nurse is currently attending to one of the crew that is a diabetic on the dock.
Sources indicate the firemen from Little Cayman went out tonight to make the rescue.
Police had reported earlier that this morning, 25 November at 9:10 am, Emergency Services received a report of the vessel, Knot Worried, in distress southwest of Little Cayman. Search and rescue efforts commenced, led by the RCIPS including the Air Operations Unit, the Cayman Islands Coast Guard (CICG), and the Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS), with support from a radio operator on Cayman Brac and private citizens from Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
CMR understands that one man is in his mid-40s and his companion is in his 60s. Rough seas made the rescue mission challenging but in the end, they were successful in bringing them to safety.
