This morning, the Ocean Viking rescued 84 people, including 58 unaccompanied minors, who were on an overcrowded rubber dinghy in international waters off the coast of Libya.
SOS Mediterranee and IFRC (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies) teams cared for many of the survivors suffering from dehydration and hypothermia.
According to SOS Mediterranee, Ravenna, north of Italy, was assigned by Italian authorities to disembark the 84 survivors onboard Ocean Viking.
