The fishing district of the Cantabrian capital woke up in a state of shock upon hearing the news: the shipwreck had left two dead, one missing person who is still missing 48 hours later, and a person with severe hypothermia.

Ten sailors of different nationalities were traveling on the ship, most of them from Senegal, others from Spain, Ghana and Peru. Around 04:10, the Maritime Rescue Center received a distress call from the fishing vessel that was six miles north of Cabo Mayor.

Upon learning of the situation, the Santander Rescue coordination center mobilized its rescue units and the fishing boats in the area to act quickly and managed to do so in less than an hour. The Siempre Nécora fishing boat rescued seven people, six alive and one deceased. A second fishing boat, Ave Fénix, rescued another of the sailors, also deceased, and a boat, a last crew member, alive, as detailed by the head of the coordination center, Germán Erostarbe, in statements to TVE.
