A fishing boat, was capsized in Mobor on Thursday morning. The five fisherman on-board were thrown into the rough sea waters. While two fisherman managed to reach ashore by swimming, one was rescue by a Drishti lifeguard posted in Mobor while the other was assisted by a water sports operator on a jetski. One of the persons who fell overboard is still missing.
As per the information received from the survivors, one more person was on the boat. The lifeguard on the jetski went into the sea to look for the fifth victim, but it was very difficult to trace him as the boat had capsized. Meanwhile, the coast guard helicopter also reached to the spot. Coast guard team is in the process of looking for the missing person.
With IMD issuing a red alert in Goa the state is witnessing heavy rains across many parts of Goa. The weather along the coast has led to extremely rough sea conditions, high waves and strong undercurrent. Red flags have been posted across all beaches under Drishti’s surveillance indicating that these are strictly non-swim zones.
