A man survives after being trapped for 16 hours in the air pocket created by his overturned boat in A Coruña

-

Divers from the Spanish Coast Guard rescued a 62-year-old French sailor who survived for 16 hours inside an air bubble from his capsized boat while drifting in the Atlantic Ocean, according to Fox News. The Society for Salvage and Security Marítima de España located the French sailboat Jeanne SOLO Sailor capsized about 14 miles from the Sisargas Islands off the northwestern Galician region of Malpica. The 40-foot boat had set sail from Lisbon, Portugal, on Sunday morning and sent out a distress signal just before 9 p.m. Monday. Rescuers located the capsized boat and a diver was dispatched to the hull to investigate if there was someone alive, authorities said. The trapped man responded to the diver’s blows to the helmet by striking backwards. The divers described the rescue operation as “on the brink of the impossible.” The waters were too rough to attempt a rescue at that time and they waited for dawn, Fox News reports. Rescuers attached buoyancy devices to the hull to prevent the ship from sinking further. Once morning came, two divers swam under the sailboat and found the man, who has not been identified, knee-deep in water. The man was able to dive off the ship on his own, with the help of divers, and reach the ocean’s surface, the coast guard said. He was treated at a hospital and later released. “Each life saved is our greatest reward,” said the Spanish Maritime Rescue and Safety Society in a tweet. “Each life saved is our greatest reward.” This was the rescue carried out yesterday by Maritime Rescue to the crew member of the French sailboat JEANNE SOLO SAILOR which was keel to sun 14 miles NNW of Sisargas Islands. pic.twitter.com/gqobWTSoWc— MARITIME RESCUE (@salvamentogob) August 3, 2022
