HMCS Longueuil Rescues Survivors
HMCS Longueuil Rescues Survivors

Sailors aboard the Canadian frigate HMCS Longueuil (right) throw a line to survivors on a raft (left) during a rescue.

The survivors, from the MV (motor vessel) Panama, stand aboard a rectangular wooden raft like those fitted to many merchant ships. Alongside, a round, inflatable rubber raft dropped by a rescue aircraft floats on the water. This photograph is part of a series documenting the rescue of five of the Panama's crew by the Longueuil and a United States Navy aircraft. These five were fortunate; searches or chance sightings by ships and aircraft did not always locate survivors in time to save them.
