Atlantis crew and Jason team involved in Egyptian rescue

Heroes at Sea

In November, 2011, while in the Mediterranean Sea on a Dive & Discover research mission, R/V Atlantis rescued 93 men from a foundering fishing boat. The ship’s crew and ROV Jason expedition team provided the men food, water, blankets, and dry clothing while transporting them safely to Greece. This past April, the crews gathered at the WHOI dock to receive an award from the Association for Rescue at Sea. Front row, from left: James McGill, Peter Leonard, Patrick Hennessy. Middle row: Capt.
