A non-governmental organisation rescued 99 migrants from the Mediterranean Sea over two days. 

The Sea-Watch came to the aid of the two boats after some people had fallen overboard following pushback from the Libyan Coast Guard.

A number of the passengers were injured and some had sustained fuel burns.

Onboard, aid workers found nine unaccompanied minors, three of which were very young children, and a heavily pregnant woman.

The Sea-Watch 3 vessel operates just outside the Libyan national sea zone and searches for boats in distress.
