The rescue operation happened on Friday morning about 30 nautical miles off the coast of Libya, according to the organization.

MSF states that the inflatable boat was overcrowded and that many of the survivors were cold, sea sick and weak. Among those rescued are pregnant and infants, according to the organization.
