The crew on board the Irish navy vessel Le Eithne have once again been praised for their efforts after it was revealed that the devoted crew members successfully revived a baby after it was found unconscious in the Mediterranean Sea during a major rescue operation recently.
The remarkable heroics came after the vessel rescued a total of 712 migrants over the weekend after they got into difficulty whilst trying to cross the rough sea.
However the crew who are always on standby to complete tough rescue missions did not only revive the young baby they also managed to revive five other migrants who drowned whilst desperately fleeing their homeland due to ongoing warfare.
Speaking about his crews brave actions Captain Brian Fitzgerald told Morning Ireland: “I’m very proud to say that no lives were lost. They were in a wretched condition but healthy enough.”
“We took on board five unconscious migrants including one baby.” “Each of these received CPR administered on the Rigid Inflatable Boat and all five were revived.”
Commander Fitzgerald added: “I have never witnessed a performance from an Irish team like I did today. Each and every member played their hearts out.”
