News

It was an amazing rescue in the Western Pacific. Three missing sailors were saved after writing “SOS” in the sand. 

Australian and U.S. forces spotted the message outlined on the beach of a small island.

The sailors set sail Thursday on a 23-nautical-mile journey, but they veered off course and ran out of fuel. 

An Australian military helicopter landed on the beach and gave them food and water. They’re in good condition.
