Writing SOS In The Sand Saved This Couple’s Life


Two people stranded on an uninhabited Pacific island were rescued after writing “SOS” in the sand, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
After a seven-day search for the missing boaters by an international maritime team, a U.S. Navy aircraft crew spotted them on a beach near an “SOS” sign they had carved into the sand, the U.S. Coast Guard announced today.

The castaway pair had departed from Weno Island on Aug. 17 with “limited supplies and no emergency equipment on board” en route to Tamatam Island, Micronesia, the U.S. Coast Guard said in a statement. The boaters hoped to arrive the next day, but never made it.
