Man overboard is a condition in which a ship crew member falls in a sea. MOB is a potentially dangerous situation. Unfortunately, in maximum times these accidents can lead to death. That's what it is essential for the ship employees to act quickly and perform accurate mob recovery system methods to save the life of the person in the water.

One must be so careful while performing this duty on board as it is so crucial and cannot be taken for granted as it can save someone's life. The proper training for this should be implemented for the ship staff. This accident mostly happens due to bad climatic conditions, swells in the sea, and negligence.
