Sea (Stranded Book 2)
Two Florida teens were enjoying senior skip day at the beach when they found themselves stranded in the ocean.
Augustine, on Thursday, April 18, when they realized they might not make it back to shore. Tyler Smith, 17, and Heather Brown, 17, friends since fourth grade, were stranded in the ocean for two hours before being rescued by a boat named "Amen. Christ's Church Academy.
Tyler held onto Heather as he started cramping, and just in time, Captain Eric Wagner and his crew found them. Then we showed up.
Wagner called the Coast Guard as he took his boat, "The Amen," to their rescue. For now, Ivan will remain on the atoll's main island. The remote island only has one phone line, and its single plane is down for maintenance and won't be able to return Ivan home until Tuesday. Officials have floated the idea of removing him by boat, but we'd guess Ivan might not be keen on getting back on the water. Though it seems obvious that Ivan was lost at sea for a long time, it's difficult to know if his impossible-sounding month ordeal is accurate, especially while Ivan remains Marshall-Island-bound.
6 Famous Castaways
According to the AFP, which broke the story, survivor stories like Ivan's are not totally unprecedented :. In , three Mexicans made international headlines when they were discovered drifting, also in a small fiberglass boat near the Marshall Islands, nine months after setting out on a shark-fishing expedition. They survived on a diet of rainwater, raw fish and seabirds, with their hope kept alive by reading the Bible. In , two fishermen from Kiribati were at sea for days before coming ashore in Samoa.
Officials hope to learn more about the case once Ivan is transferred to Majuro, the Marshall Island's legislative district.
