A product tanker operated by the NYK Group rescued 28 fishermen from life rafts on last week off the coast of Colombia.

The Challenge Pollux was sailing from the Panama Canal to Houston on September 14 when it received a call from a U.S.-based Maritime Rescue Coordination Center (MRCC) requesting assistance with the rescue of 28 crew members who had evacuated from a sinking fishing boat.

The rescued seafarers were given water, food, clothing and first-aid on board the Challenge Pollux before being transferred to a Colombian Coast Guard vessel.
