Rescue at El Mago.


Crew and sunbathers joined forces yesterday to save a British-registered motor launch from sinking in Playa de Mago, Calvia. According to the emergency services, the yacht had begun taking on water and, in accordance with nautical protocol, vessels are advised to head to the Playa de Mago because of its shallow waters which therefore can help to keep stricken vessels afloat until the maritime rescue services reached the scene.

There were seven people on board the seven-metre launch and got involved with the mission to rescue the vessel from either sinking or crashing against the rocks. The launch was washed by the strong current and waves just metres away from the beach, forcing many sunbathers to pack up and leave while others joined the rescue operation.
