HMS Duncan helps injured fisherman
Royal Navy warship HMS Duncan has come to the aid of an injured Iranian fisherman injured in the central Gulf.
The Type 45 destroyer was on a routine day at sea when crew heard a ‘Mayday’ call and immediately turned to help the dhow OLI-1.
Less than an hour after the emergency request was made, the ship’s doctor was transferred to the dhow using one of HMS Duncan’s sea boats.
The doctor and a trained medical first-aider were able to treat the man’s head injuries as well as provide medical assistance to another sick fisherman.
