Video released Friday showed the moment a German NGO rescued 29 people from an overcrowded wooden boat off the coast of Libya.
The rescue took place Wednesday.
The video shows the charity's vessel, Sea-Eye 4, in the distance, and a rescue craft communicating with the migrants on their flimsy boat.
One of the rescuers spoke to the migrants in English and was told four children were on board, as well as two pregnant women.
According to Sea-Eye, the rescue weather conditions worsened shortly afterwards, implying that a potential disaster was averted.
