The 9.6 meter long fishing vessel Saint Bernard sank off Portsall, France. The Saint Bernard sent out a distress call that the fishing vessel had suffered water ingress and was sinking. The nearby fishing vessel Christelle-Mikaël relayed the message to the Corsen Regional Operational Surveillance and Rescue Center. They launched a search and rescue operation with the SNSM lifeboats from Portsall, French Navy aircraft and nearby fishing vessels Roc’h Avel and La Fanette.
Two hours later, the SNSM lifeboat found the body in the water between Karreg Cros and Rosservo Islands. Identified as the sole crew on board the Saint Bernard, he was taken to Portsall.
