Monaco’s “Le Libecciu” vessel was launched on the afternoon of Friday, July 21, to rescue two swimmers in considerable difficulty. The Maritime and Airport Police Division boat, together with another craft, come to the aid of the two tourists off the solarium of Esplanade Stefano Casiraghi.
Heavy seas hampered the mission, but two rescuers went immediately into the water to save the two very experienced swimmers, one of whom was in a state of advanced distress and suffering from shock.
The two swimmers were immediately taken in charge by the Monaco fire service at Port Hercules. One was taken to the Emergency Room at the Princess Grace Hospital to receive the proper care. The two had entered the sea despite warning signs indicating the dangers.
