  Heroes at Sea

heroes at seaThe Master of MV Mediterranean Highway, Capt. Dimitar G. Dobrev and his combined team of Bulgarian officers and Filipino crew were awarded a Public Service Commendation last July 1 by the U.S. Coast Guard. They rescued six Cuban migrants in distress in the Straits of Florida on June 3, 2011.

While transiting from Brunswick, Georgia to Houston, Texas, Mediterranean Highway encountered a homemade, flimsy vessel with six migrants onboard being tossed and turned in heavy seas and high winds. Captain Dobrev and his crew expertly maneuvered his car carrier alongside the decrepit craft which the migrants were trying desperately to keep afloat in rough seas. After rescuing the six passengers, the Mediterranean Highway marked the abandoned vessel (as a navigational hazard) and provided comfort and initial medical care to the migrants until they were picked up by the U.S. Coast Guard.

The actions of the officers and crew of Mediterranean Highway were taken in the true sense of humanitarian intervention without regard to potential delay of service or possibility of damage to their own ship. As a result of their selfless acts, the six migrants were safely pulled from their unseaworthy vessel before fatigue or weather conditions seriously jeopardized their lives. The actions of Capt. Dobrev and his crew are heartily commended by the US Coast Guard for they are truly in keeping with the highest traditions of professional mariners.
