Awards for Bravery (Rescue at Sea)

Dr. Jerome Morgan, of the United States, 72 year-old survivor from a yacht (“Sumatra II”) that sank off Australia in appalling weather conditions last year, was reunited with his rescuer, Fijian seaman James Fanifau, in an emotional ceremony held on 24 November 2010 at the Headquarters of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Fanifau received, from IMO Secretary-General Efthimios E. Mitropoulos, the 2010 IMO Award for Exceptional Bravery at Sea for his part in plucking Dr. Morgan from the sea in a highly dangerous rescue operation.
