Fact check

Even though the services of a boat ambulance has been announced by the Maharashtra government from Gateway of India (Mumbai) to Mandwa Jetty (Raigad), ThePrint found that the image used in the social media posts was not from India.

It is a boat ambulance in Guernsey, one of the English Channel islands near the French coast. The image of the boat being shared is called Flying Christine III and it was previously shown in a BBC article from 2014.
