Egypt’s Naval Forces on Sunday have rescued two French tourists from drowning south of the Red Sea, after their sailing boat was hit by 40-knot wind speed, which led the boat to sink.

Spokesperson of the Armed Forces Tamer al-Refai stated that the naval forces were alerted to the boat’s sinking, nearby the Qandera coral reef in South Bernice at the Red Sea.

Naval forces transferred the tourists to a port where they received treatment.
