إنقاذ بحار وكلبه بعد أن فقدا لمدة شهرين في المحيط

July 19, 2023 - داس البحار الأسترالي تيم شادوك وكلبه بيلا اليابسة لأول مرة بعد أن فقدا في البحر لمدة شهرين.

Shaddock, 54, smiling and good humoured, was the living image of a castaway, with a long blonde beard and emaciated appearance, as he joked with a group of reporters Tuesday, standing in front of the fishing boat that rescued him at the port of Manzanillo on Mexico’s Pacific coast.

Shaddock and his dog left northwest Mexico in a catamaran in late April, he said, planning to sail to French Polynesia. A few weeks into his voyage, he was struck by a storm, which disabled his catamaran and left him with no electronics and no way to cook.

He and Bella survived by fishing and eating their catch raw. Rain provided their drinking water, according to AP.
