All were quickly recovered from the water.[REMOVE]Fotnote: Sunnmørsposten, 10 April 2008, “Uhell på Draugen”.
Those aboard this small, fast rescue craft hailed from the Ocean Sky standby ship stationed on Draugen, and the weather was good with a virtually calm sea when the accident happened. The four were picked up by another MOB boat from the Tordis Knudtsen tanker. All were wearing survival suits and in good condition, without physical injuries from the incident.
