Taiwanese Fishing Ship Finds Women Lost at Sea for 5 Months, Alerts U.S. Navy

Two American women, Jennifer Appel and Tasha Fuiaba, were saved after being stranded in the middle of the ocean for five months thanks to a Taiwanese fishing boat that spotted them on Oct. 24.

The women’s crippled sailboat were spotted by the Taiwanese fishing vessel about 900 miles southeast of Japan, according to Taiwan News. After they saw Appel and Fuiaba’s boat, the crew immediately contacted the United States Navy stationed in Guam.
