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

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