A merchant ship dispatched to the region, some 19 kilometers (12 miles) east of Crete, made the rescue after a person on the sinking boat called the emergency call center for help.

In addition to a helicopter and boat belonging to the Greek Coast Guard, a navy frigate was sent to the region to participate in search and rescue operations, the agency added.
