TRAGEDY AMID MIRACULOUS RESCUE

Tragedy struck off the Florida Keys at the weekend when an 80 year old woman died after a pleasure boat capsized and sank. There were eight people on board when the boat got into trouble amid choppy waters. The rest of the grouped managed to tread water for an amazing 20 hours before being rescued. Amongst them was a four year old girl who was kept afloat by the passengers.


Petty Officer Second Class Nick Ameen said, 'Our understanding is that they used something like a cooler to keep the girl above water.


Petty Officer Ameen added, 'Treading water just for one hour is challenging to say the least... but when the will to live kicks in, human beings can do amazing things.'
