The U-boat captain took in many of the survivors while others were towed in lifeboats behind the sub. But when American bombers began strafing the flotilla by accident, the captain was forced to place most of his passengers into lifeboats and cut the tow. Later, the German navy ordered that no survivors were to be taken onboard U-boats. The instructions became known as the "LACONIA Order".
