A rescued man stands on the upper aft on the Aquarius, looking out into the horizon on the Mediterranean sea. On May 7, 2018, after remaining on standby during long negotiations with the Italian maritime authorities, the Aquarius accepted the transfer of 105 people, rescued earlier that day by Astral. All were safely disembarked in the port of Catania, Sicily on May 10, 2018.
