SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says four men from St. Vincent & the Grenadines have been rescued at sea after drifting for as long as 12 days on a disabled powerboat.
The four men had apparently been traveling in late August from a tiny Grenadines island to the small Caribbean country's main island of St. Vincent when the outboard engine died on their 30-foot (9-meter) boat.
The Coast Guard and a St. Vincent-flagged freighter rescued them in rough waters south of Puerto Rico.
A Monday statement from the Coast Guard says the boaters appeared to be in good health.
Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad says it is not immediately clear how they survived during their ordeal.
