The video says a sailboat sank at night near the town of Sines and 5 people were rescued by a nearby fishing boat. The rescue was organised by the Portuguese navy after the sailboat "alerted" the MRCC that they were taking on water after an "encounter" with orcas.
A Marinha, através do Centro de Coordenação de Busca e Salvamento Marítimo (MRCC) de Lisboa, em articulação com o Capitão do Porto de Sines, coordenou, esta madrugada, o salvamento de cinco tripulantes que se encontravam na balsa salva-vidas depois de o veleiro onde seguiam ter afundado após...
Os cinco tripulantes encontravam-se "na balsa salva-vidas depois de o veleiro onde seguiam ter afundado após encontro com orcas, a cerca de seis milhas, o equivalente a 11 quilómetros, de Sines", no distrito de Setúbal.
According to this, the MRCC was alerted at 00:03, the 5 sailors were found in the liferaft, about 6 miles from Sines, and the fishing boat with the survivors arrived safely in port at 02:43.
Interesting advice from the navy: turn off the engine and lock the rudder, to " demotivate" the young orca from playing with the boat.
"GLADIS BLANCA-GB, is one of the most active GLADIS of all, and also of her group. She is an adult female and has offspring that also interact. Her daughters are GLADIS FILABRES, born around 2015, and GLADIS TARIK born in 2021. Her mother, GLADIS LAMARI-GL, the matriarch, acts as an observer, having been seen only a couple of times in the videos of the interactions, but always far away. Among her descendants we find GLADIS CLARA-GC born around 2011 and GLADIS DALILA-GDL born in 2017, all of them registered as observers. This group constitutes a complete matrilineal line related to interactions."
I don’t know. At the risk of being warned to “take it to PA”, I think I’m all for whales, and nature of any kind for that matter, fighting back and evening the score a little bit. Go team orca. Now if only they were big enough to take on whaling ships.
