Narrow escape for 7 fishermen as boat sinks at sea

Udupi, Dec 2 (UNI) Seven fishermen from Udupi, who were onboard ‘Mathura’ boat, owned by TharanathKunder from Malpe, had a narrow escape on November 26, as their boat sank off Maharashtra Coast, sources said on Wednesday.
The seven panic-stricken fishermen were shouting and screaming for help as their boat got damaged and started sinking. Luckily for them, a nearby boat – Mahur, which had a BSNL-Skylo 2-way communication device, heard their call to rescue them in the nick of time.
Using its satellite-based BSNL-Skylo 2-way Communication technology, the boat was able to raise an alarm with the Mathura’s boat owner as well as with the Maharashtra Coastal Security. Using a two-way communication system, it was clearly able to communicate the exact location of the sinking boat and provide support just on time to help save the lives of the seven fishermen.
