When the Japan Coast Guard summarized the large-scale communication failure that occurred before dawn on the 2nd at KDDI, a major mobile phone company, through the headquarters of each district, it affected eight marine accidents nationwide, including a case where the report was delayed by 5 hours. I found out that it was there.

Of these, at the Kaike fishing port in Yonago City, Tottori Prefecture, an accident occurred at around midnight on the 3rd when a pleasure boat ran on a wave-dissipating block and oil spilled. It was past 5 am.



The person on the pleasure boat was thrown into the sea by the impact of the accident and injured his face and legs, but he could not ask for help because there were no people around him, and he went fishing about 5 hours later. He called out to the fishermen who came to the fishing port, borrowed a mobile phone to make a report, and was taken to the hospital.



Also, off the coast of Fukui Prefecture, after noon on the 2nd, a two-seater pleasure boat reported that the engine had broken down, so the Japan Coast Guard contacted a private rescue worker for cooperation. The phone didn't connect.



After that, a patrol boat arrived at the scene and rescued.



In addition, there were eight cases of impact on marine accidents, such as a fishing boat coming into contact with a floating object but not being able to report it, and making a report after entering the port. It means that there was no difference.



The Japan Coast Guard is calling on its website to secure terminals that can make emergency calls and then go out for marine leisure activities.
