A west end resident called 911 “reporting a flashing light was seen coming from a small vessel in the direction of Daniel’s Head” and it “transpired that flashlights were in use in lobster diving efforts.”

A Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre spokesperson said, “Friday 2nd September, 8:00pm. A west end resident located at Ely’s Harbour, called 911 requesting for Marine Rescue, reporting a flashing light was seen coming from a small vessel in the direction of Daniel’s Head.

“The reporting source could also see a person onboard whom they thought were waving their arms in the direction of the 911 caller indicating signs that assistance was required.

“The Bermuda Coastguard were briefed and made ready to proceed to the incident, the 911 caller subsequently reported that a small vessel had proceeded to investigate.

“It transpired that flashlights were in use in lobster diving efforts, and the 911 caller noted this led to confused thinking that a small boat was needing assistance. No further action was required.”
