Two Marine Police vessels responded Wednesday morning after receiving a distress call from a ferry that operates from the Rodney Bay Marina, a Marine official has confirmed.
The official told St Lucia Times that the distress call was received about 10.12 a.m.
He disclosed that the two Maine Police boats sailed out to meet the vessel in distress and had 12 passengers and 2 crew transferred from the ferry which had begun to take in water.
The ferry was being towed to land at the time of the interview about 1.00 p.m, it was explained.
“Everyone is safe,” the official told St Lucia Times.
No further details were immediately available.
