VIDEO: Italian Coast Guard Rescuer Helps Migrants in English Language!

Wed Sep 14, 2016 16:50:53

With a distinctly Italian accent, a coast guard rescuer called out to a group of migrants crammed aboard a cheap rubber dinghy on Tuesday: “My friend, we come to save you, we are Italian. Stay sit down because it is dangerous, okay?”

The rescuers then proceeded to give each of the migrants a life jacket and transfer them aboard coast guard rescue boats.

Italian Coast Guard rescuers say they try to communicate in English with the migrants and gesture clearly to avoid them standing up and tipping over the boats.

Their goal is to keep the migrants seated until they all have life jackets on and can be transferred one by one into rescue dinghies.

Coast Guard ships Corsi and Diciotti were involved in four operations rescuing migrants in two dinghies and two small boats on Tuesday.

About 650 migrants will be brought to the Sicilian port of Pozzallo aboard Diciotti on Wednesday afternoon.
