A Turkish naval frigate responded to an emergency call from a Greek registered merchant vessel in the Indian Ocean late on Sept. 7, the Turkish Naval Forces has said.        

According to a statement, the call came from the Greek ship “Aegean Angel” to the Turkish frigate TCG Giresun for the Greek ship’s injured crew.      

Vazoios Marcos, a wounded Greek sailor, was seen by the TCG Giresun’s military doctor and later transferred to Oman’s Port of Salalah for further medical intervention.
