Australian sailor stranded at sea for three months details moment he was rescued


An Australian sailor who was rescued by a Mexican tuna boat after being adrift at sea with his dog for three months says he is grateful to be alive after setting foot on dry land for the first time since their ordeal began.

Timothy Lyndsay Shaddock, 53, set sail from the Mexican city of La Paz, but was crippled by bad weather weeks into the journey. When the tuna boat’s helicopter spotted his catamarn about 1,200 miles from land, it was the first sign of humans he had seen in three months.
