Rescues.

On 11 May, the crew of Mustin (DDG 89) rescued 27 people from the Panamanian-flagged vessel Olympias, when an engine-room fire engulfed the boat in the northern Arabian Gulf. Mustin's embarked helicopter from HSL-45 Det 5 arrived on scene and directed the destroyer's RHIB to Olympias. Mustin sailors safely transferred the mariners to the destroyer's RHIBs and then to the ship where they received food, clothing, and medical attention. They were later transferred to Carl Vinson (CVN 70) and then flown to Bahrain where representatives from the Indian Embassy met them for repatriation.
