The US Coast Guard District 7 rescued two fishermen, adrift for two weeks, from the water 23 miles northeast of Cat Island, Bahamas, on May 18.

Footage uploaded by the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service shows the coast guard hoisting the fishermen to safety via helicopter.

According to the video’s caption, the fishermen were rescued after a “good Samaritan vessel” spotted them and reported them to authorities. Credit: US Coast Guard District 7 via Storyful

    Congratulations to the two fishermen, they just won the life lottery, the chances of being found at sea after two weeks are close to 0%.

    For people that question why the boat that found them did not rescue them. It is not uncommon for cartel or other criminals to pose as people in distress to murder crew and steal their boats.
