Portuguese family rescued from yacht stranded off coast of Somalia




A Portuguese family has been rescued from a yacht that became stranded off the coast of Somalia.

The Azorean husband and wife and their two children aged 5 and 8 were sailing the world when their fuel ran about 250 kilometres off the Somalia coast.

They spent several hours drifting before being helped by a Pakistani navy ship, which gave them fuel and food so they could continue their journey.
