Sailor and Dog Amazingly Survive on Rainwater, Raw Fish While Adrift for Two Months

An Australian man has been rescued in the Pacific after surviving for two months on rainwater and raw fish in what has been likened to the film “Cast Away” — but his companion was a dog, not a hand-printed volleyball.

Sydney resident Tim Shaddock, a 51-year-old cancer survivor, and his pooch Bella set off from La Paz, Mexico, in April on a catamaran journey to French Polynesia, but their vessel was damaged in a storm several weeks later, Australia’s 9News reported.

The pair survived by drinking rainwater and eating raw fish as they waited for a miracle while adrift in the Pacific.

On Wednesday, a helicopter conducting surveillance for a tuna trawler spotted the tiny catamaran bobbing in the middle of the vast ocean. . .

Shaddock and Bella, who were taken aboard the trawler, appeared to be in remarkably good shape, given what they endured. (Read more from “Sailor and Dog Amazingly Survive on Rainwater, Raw Fish While Adrift for Two Months” HERE)
