Several migrants jumped off the Spanish humanitarian rescue boat Open Arms anchored near the Italian island of Lampedusa on Tuesday.
Footage shows migrants being taken out of water with the help of a coast guard vessel.
Two other migrants who had jumped before were also seen sitting in a coast guard boat with emergency blankets on.
The Italian government led chiefly by Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has so far refused docking permission for the boat, causing a stand-off.
Six EU countries have already offered to take in more than one hundred migrants who have been aboard the ship for 19 days.
