SOS on beach rescues sailors on Pacific island

Scenes that we normally watch in a film, last weekend became a reality on an uninhabited island in the Pacific.

Three sailors had ended up without fuel on a small boat and were stranded on the Pikelot island of Micronesia, without any means to contact authorities for assistance.

After spending three days missing, an Australian defence helicopter on a flight to Hawaii, spotted the words SOS written on the beach and provided food and drink supplies to the three men.

The Micronesian authorities were then notified about the missing sailors and sent transport to them.
