Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF) and Greenpeace boat crews responded to an emergency on December 16 as a wooden refugee boat capsized about mile and a half off the coast of Lesbos. On arrival to the scene all refugees were in the water and a major rescue operation involving Greenpeace, MSF, Frontex, Sea Watch and Proactiva ensued. A total of 83 people were rescued, while two people drowned - an 80-year-old man and nine-month old girl.
