36 passengers were rescued from a speedboat which sank in a stretch of Egypt’s Red Sea, south of the resort city of Marsa Alam.
A live stream of the rescue mission showed the boat slowly sinking into the water as rescue teams helped passengers.
26 Polish tourists, eight crew members and two tour guides were on board.
The capsized boat, named the New Dream, sank after a collision with coral reefs in the area cracked its hull, according to local reports.
The rescue was carried out by another nearby luxury speed boat named Enjoy, which answered the New Dream’s call for aid.
Local media reported the passengers were taken to a port in Marsa Alam where they received medical attention. No serious injuries were sustained by any passengers.
In April, a triple-decker diving cruise ship capsized in the Red Sea while carrying 35 people in Egypt’s northern Red Sea region, all passengers also survived.
The Red Sea is well-known for its complex networks of coral reefs that make diving there a scenic experience, but add to the treachery of sailing.
