Three men were rescued from remote desert island in adventure-book style on Thursday. three sailors became marooned on tiny, uninhabited island of Fanadik in South Pacific Ocean after their boat capsized. island is several hundred kilometres north of Papua New Guinea. Even though they lost their vessel at night, men managed to swim for nearly three kilometres to reach land. They remained on island for three days and believed they were modern-day castaways. They wrote word 'HELP' in the sand using palm leaves so they might be spotted by plane. Their prayers were answered when U.S. Coast Guard plane spotted their message on beach.

Coast Guard spokesman spoke about rescue. He said: "Our combined efforts, coupled with willingness of many different resources to come together and help, led to successful rescue of these three men in very remote part of Pacific." Once men were found, their families were notified and they were put on boat back to island of Pulap, from where they had initially set out to sea. The Coast Guard said none of men was injured. The rescue is one of many U.S. Coast Guard has undertaken recently. Officials say that in last two weeks, they have coordinated seven search-and-rescue missions in the South Pacific, saving the lives of 15 people.
