Mayday call dispatcher asked Conception crewmember: "Can you get back onboard and unlock the boat?"
In audio from a mayday call from the Conception, a Coast Guard dispatcher from Los Angeles questioned a Conception crew member about whether passengers were locked onboard the vessel.
"Can you get back onboard and unlock the boat?" the dispatcher asked.
In another question, the Coast Guard asked if there was an "escape hatch for any of the people onboard."
In audio from Broadcastify, the Coast Guard dispatcher also questioned the crewmember about firefighting equipment onboard.
"You don’t have any firefighting gear at all? No fire extinguishers or anything?”
The crewmember’s responses are not audible in the recording.
Earlier today, Truth Aquatics, the company that owns the Conception, did not provide comment. CNN is continually reaching out.
Captain Monica Rochester with the US Coast Guard said earlier today that “the vessel has been in full compliance.
"We are working deliberately with the vessel owner/operator who is with us at the time," she said
Da ist die Rede von UNLOCK THE BOAT???? Die Leute waren eingesperrt??? Oder wurde vermutet dass sie eingesperrt sind? Das wäre allerdings extrem heftig.
