on Wednesday, about 15 h, the helicopter Caiman of the flotilla 33 of Lanvéoc takes off from the place de Loguivy-de-la-Mer, after having supported Mamadou Faye, 44 years of age, a seaman on The child d’arvor. Its shell in Saint-Quay-Portrieux, registered in Saint-Brieuc, was wrecked, at about 11: 15 a.m., at the north-east of Bréhat, where he fished the coquille Saint-Jacques, after toe-to-toe on the rocks.
This Senegalese, a deck-hand confirmed well-known in the middle, has been rescued from the water, unconscious, clinging to a buoy crown, by the boss of the Petite Folie 3, Sébastien Le Fur, who came to their rescue, which was fishing nearby. His boss, Colin Dewals, had been recovered shortly before one in the life boat, safe and sound.
When supported, the deck-hand was in a critical condition, cardiac arrest.
The child d’arvor, a boat usually used for seawrack, would have toe-to-toe on a rock in the passage Warned, before sinking in a few minutes. Earlier, the skipper had decided to shorten the fishing day due to weather made it more difficult.
At this time, colleagues working on this area located between Barnoïc and The Horaine where the current is particularly strong, evidenced by a sea of very formed, with winds of 20 to 30 knots that blew in the gust.
The deck would have jumped in with the buoy, crown, and would have lost consciousness at the end of 45 minutes, in water at just 15° C, probably victim of the cold. Despite the cardiac massage given by a military doctor hélitreuillé on the Petite Folie 3, and after having been recovered several times, it ended by falling into cardiac arrest.
The helicopter was transported to the hospital Yves Le Foll, Saint-Brieuc, in a critical state. He died this morning (Thursday). His body will be repatriated to Senegal.
