Three fishermen have been saved after drifting in the Pacific Ocean for five days without food. The trio had set off from the island of Tarawa on Friday, but their 17ft boat's engine broke down about five miles from shore. With no oars on the vessel, the men tried to break off portions of the boat to paddle back to shore.
Local authorities began looking for the men before the American Embassy in Fiji requested help from the US Coast Guard on Monday.
Themen were rescued and transported back to Tarawa where they received a medical evaluation and were released. The men had no food and ran out of water the morning of their rescue.
