3 castaways found on Pacific island after skiff sinks

Three men who were stranded on an uninhabited Pacific island for three days are safe, Thursday, after using palm fronds to spell the word “help” in the sand on Fanadik Island.

A Navy P-8 Madfox 807 aircrew was conducting a search pattern for the missing mariners when they spotted survivors holding lifejackets and their makeshift sign.
