Rescue crews recovered the bodies of three men, two women, a boy and a girl. There were two survivors - a man and a woman.

A search and rescue operation in the area by vessels from the Greek coast guard and the European border patrol agency Frontex, a helicopter and Greek rescue volunteers was called off after all on board the boat were accounted for.
