28.10.2015 - 37.79930, 27.10410. At 8.20 a.m. Alarm Phone was informed about a boat in distress east of Samos, with 35 travellers on board. They received the coordinates and a video clip from the boat, in which the travellers asked for help, because the sea was very rough. Alarm Phone alerted the Greek coastguard and they took the coordinates. At 9.30 a.m. and again at 9.50 a.m. another contact person forwarded coordinates in the same area to them. Although Alarm Phone was not able to discern whether they belong to the same boat or to another one, they again informed both the coastguard and the port authorities on Samos. Afterwards, they could not establish contact to neither the travellers nor the contact persons again. In the afternoon, the port authorities on Samos confirmed to Alarm Phone that they had rescue several boats with more than 300 travellers on board. However, they were not able to tell whether the boats they had contact to were amongst them.

28.10.2015 - 39.43550, 26.32377. At 7.10 p.m. Alarm Phone was informed about a boat that has capsized north of Lesvos, with more than 300 travellers on board. They received two phone numbers – both were not reachable – and later also coordinates of the vessel. In a call to the Greek rescue coordination centre in Piraeus at 8 p.m. they learned that the Greek coastguard was conducting a large rescue operation in this area since 5 p.m. Apparently, this was the capsized wooden boat from which 242 travellers were rescued, first and foremost thanks to the self-sacrificing efforts of Greek and Turkish fishermen and other volunteers. However, more than 50 travellers were feared to have drowned, representing the most deadly incident in the Aegean Sea. Volunteering lifesavers from the Spanish organization ‘Proactiva Open Arms’ reported afterwards that particularly the border guards of a Norwegian vessel under Frontex mandate had been very passive during the large-scale rescue operation, only throwing ropes to the travellers, while lifesavers entered the boat in distress and desperately tried to grasp drowning men, women and children by jumping into the sea.

28.10.2015 - 39.10407, 26.74186. At 5.45 a.m. Alarm Phone received the coordinates of a boat in distress east of Lesvos, but still in Turkish waters. After establishing direct contact to the travellers via WhatsApp, they learned that they had moved further west and they estimated to be 4 kilometres off the coast of Lesvos at 6.30 a.m. In the meantime, another contact person had informed them about the same boat and had forwarded two other phone numbers of the travellers. However, they were not able to talk to them directly and thus did not have updated coordinates. At 7.40 a.m. Alarm Phone received a voice message via one of the contact persons, stating that water was already entering the boat, with 35 people on board. They called the Greek coastguard on Lesvos at 7.50 a.m., but they were not able to intervene without a precise position. Alarm Phone was told to ask the travellers to call 112. However, at 8 a.m. both contact persons informed them that the group had safely arrived on an island, presumably Lesvos. At 8.15 a.m. the travellers called them directly, stating that they had reached land but were in need of help. Alarm Phone urged them to call the emergency hotline 112.

28.10.2015 - 39.03300, 26.73816. At 2 a.m. Alarm Phone was informed by a contact person about a boat with 38 travellers east of Lesvos. He forwarded their coordinates and phone number to them. As the travellers were still in Turkish waters, Alarm Phone asked them what they should do. The travellers were convinced to be in Greek waters already and asked to alert the Greek coastguard. At 2.20 a.m. the travellers sent updated coordinates, which indeed showed them in Greek waters. Alarm Phone alerted the Greek coastguard in Piraeus via phone and e-mail. One hour later they talked again to the coastguard and their contact person, but both did not have any news. Finally, at 5 a.m., the contact person confirmed to that the travellers had been rescued by the Greek coastguard.

28.10.2015 - 39.39612, 26.27840. At 6.20 p.m. Alarm Phone was alerted by a contact person of a boat in distress north of Lesvos, with 45 people on board. The contact person had already informed the Turkish coastguard and they had promised to send a rescue vessel. At 6.50 p.m. Alarm Phone was able to talk directly to the travellers and received updated coordinates. Apparently, they were still moving in the direction of Lesvos and had reached Greek territorial waters. Later on, at 8.15 p.m., they again received new coordinates and informed the Greek coastguard accordingly. At 9 p.m. their contact person told them, that the boat had been rescued by the Greek coastguard.

Four inflatable rubber vessels that together carried over 400 people left a beach close to Tripoli/Libya in order to reach Italy in the night from Saturday 7th to Sunday 8th of February 2015. During their journey the migrants were without food and water and encountered situations of distress due to the very difficult weather conditions. In total, and as far as known, there were merely 86 survivors and more than 324 fatalities. Amongst the 324 dead are many young men between 18 and 25 years, but also women and children, mainly from Mali, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Gambia, Niger, and Mauritania.

14.07.2015 - 36.30143, 18.49895. On Tuesday the 14th of July, at around 1p.m., the Alarm Phone shift team was informed by Nawal Soufi’s activist collective about an emergency situation in the Central Mediterranean Sea. They stated that a vessel had left Egypt 7 days earlier, carrying about 250 people, including women and children. Following their account, the travellers had run out of drinking water and food. The collective passed on the satellite phone number of one of the passengers and the coordinates of the vessel. After disembarkation in Augusta, Sicily, on Wednesday, it emerged that a 10 year old diabetic girl from Syria had died during the journey. Following media reports and based on her parents’ accounts, those in charge of the vessel had thrown the girl’s bag overboard which contained her insulin. She fell into a coma and then passed away. Deutsche Welle reports: ‘At the behest of other passengers aboard the crowded vessel, the [father] said he had buried his daughter at sea’. Upon arrival, the Italian police arrested three Egyptians thought to be the smugglers.

25.10.2015 - 39.28360, 26.56284. At 11.50 a.m. Alarm Phone was alerted by a woman in France who said that she had learned about a distress case through Facebook. She told them about an emergency situation near Lesvos Island with several people in immediate danger. Shortly afterwards she was able to provide them with further details and a phone number of one of the travellers which, however, could not be reached. Alarm Phone sent an email with the information to the Greek coastguard, which then called them at 12.45pm and told them to inform the Turkish coastguards. When they finally reached the Turkish coastguard at 1.17pm, they told them that they had received information about this case through the Greek coastguard. At 1.21pm, one of the Alarm Phone members on Lesvos informed them that a helicopter was sent out to search for them. They had already found three bodies of women and children. More than 10 people were still missing. Afterwards, no further information could be gathered.

27.07.2015 - 36.83972 – 27.29305. On Monday the 27th of July, in the early afternoon, Nawal Soufi’s activist collective informed Alarm Phone about a situation of distress in the Aegean Sea and passed on GPS coordinates. They told them that a group was on the island of Kos without food and water and that one woman had lost consciousness. With the obtained phone number Alarm Phone tried to contact the group but they could not be reached. They informed the UNHCR in Greece and they said that they would take care of the situation. The UNHCR, a few hours later, confirmed that the regional coastguard was searching for them but could not provide them with any further details on the case. Alarm Phone also alerted the port authorities in Kos. Then, for many hours, no information about the travellers could be obtained. On the 28th of July, through the activist collective, Alarm Phone learned that the woman who was unconscious before, had died.
