Two Hawaii women and their dogs have been rescued after spending five months lost at sea in the Pacific Ocean. The pair survived off of water purifiers and a year’s worth of dry food, like pasta and oatmeal.
And they made distress calls every day, in hopes that someone would rescue them. It wasn’t until Wednesday that they were found: Boaters on a Taiwanese fishing vessel spotted them and they were finally brought to safety, according to the U.S. Navy.
Their ordeal all started in the spring, when Jennifer Appel and Tasha Fuiaba, embarked on a journey from Hawaii to Tahiti. On May 30, their sailboat’s motor failed during severe weather, but the women continued on because they believed they could eventually make it to land. Two months later, they decided to issue distress calls on a daily basis — with no luck.
