Although everything indicates that there is no need to regret personal injuries, an accident occurred this morning in front of the beach of La Concha in Isla de Lobos. The passenger transport ship to the islet, El Majorero suffered an accident and ended up semi-sunk in the area.



Apparently it would have touched with a low in one of the panoramic vision windows in the starboard area that would have opened the waterway.



All tourists and staff would have been evacuated on another boat and in the first instance everything indicates that there is no personal injury to regret.

Fuel extracted from the crashed boat between Corralejo and Isla de Lobos.

Cabildo de Fuerteventura and City Council of La Oliva inform this morning in a statement sent to Radio Sintonía that, on the night of September 16 and early today, day 17, all the necessary tasks have been completed to extract the fuel and refloat the semi-sunken boat in Lobos and move it to a safer area.



The Minister of Security and Emergencies, Paloma Hernández, recognizes the great work and coordination of the different services and all the people who have been involved to avoid personal and environmental damage.

Hernández indicates that "with the work to extract the fuel, any possibility of spillage into the sea has been avoided and, from early this morning, a flight is made to verify that there is no type of stain or polluting spill, for greater peace of mind." The tasks have had the participation of Maritime Rescue and CECOES 1-1-2.

Accident of the tourist boat that makes the crossing Corralejo-Isla de Lobos

As will be remembered, the accident occurred when a tourist boat of 20 meters in length collided with the seabed on the southern coast of the Islet of Lobos. Last night the Cabildo activated the Insular Territorial Plan of Emergencies of Civil Protection of Fuerteventura (PEIN), in order to expedite all the necessary measures to refloat the boat and avoid any type of spill that could cause damage to the environment.

The president of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, Lola García, and the Minister of Security and Emergencies, Paloma Hernández, have been present in the coordination and supervision of the tasks. They appreciate the rapid intervention of the personnel of the Emergency Services of both institutions to manage the situation.

For his part, the mayor of La Oliva, Isaí Blanco, who was present during the operations, appreciates the quick response by the Security and Emergency Service of the City of La Oliva and firefighters of the municipality who, in coordination with the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, executed all the necessary tasks for the sealing and extraction of fuel.

Likewise, they extend this recognition to all the volunteers, sailors and boats in the area who came immediately to cooperate in the tasks, "an intervention without which none of this would have been possible."

In the early hours of today, Cabildo de Fuerteventura and La Oliva City Council completed the operations to refloat the boat and move it from the site of the accident, in the vicinity of La Concha Beach, to a safer area near the pier of the Islet of Lobos.

Cabildo de Fuerteventura and City Council of La Oliva have received this morning, the material they have required to be able to carry out the maneuver of transferring the injured boat from the dock of the Islet of Lobos to the Port of Corralejo. This material is provided by the Government of the Canary Islands and arrived in Fuerteventura through the helicopter of the Emergency and Rescue Group (GES).



The arrival of the material will allow greater buoyancy and safety to the ship during the transfer. With these safety elements already in Fuerteventura, the best possible moment will be waited to start the maneuver, taking into account the navigability conditions of the sea.

This transfer operation has been coordinated by Cabildo, La Oliva City Council, General State Administration and Government of the Canary Islands. The ship will be towed by Salvamento Marítimo, from an area near the pier of Lobos to the Port of Corralejo, where Puertos Canarios has enabled a docking area.

The operations for the return of the boat to Corralejo are coordinated, once the stability of the emergency situation has been rarified, after the work for its refloating and total extraction of fuel from the tanks of the boat by members of Cabildo and City Council of La Oliva, with the cooperation of Maritime Rescue and CECOES 1-1-2, as well as volunteers who came immediately in the face of the emergency situation.
