The crew of a pilot boat rescued a 47-year-old colleague from the North Sea during a severe storm and darkness. The pilot fell overboard early on Sunday morning.

The crew managed to bring the man back on board after 15 minutes, the German Society for the Rescue of Shipwrecked Persons (DGzRS) reported. The DGzRS stated that it was "a great maritime achievement". The 47-year-old was cold but responsive. He apparently only suffered from a scrape wound. A rescue helicopter picked him up by winch and flew him to Emden.

The DGzRS sent the rescue cruiser "Hamburg" after the emergency call. Additionally, a Dutch rescue boat and a rescue helicopter were in action. A "Johanniter" emergency medical technician supported the pilots in providing first aid to the shipwrecked person via radio.
