Three Vincentians who were adrift at sea for several days after their boat encountered engine trouble, have been rescued by the Lady Debbie, a Martinique tug.

According to Martinique media reports, the three Vincentians had no water at the time of their rescue 190 miles West of Saint Vincent.

They were badly dehydrated, but managed to survive by eating the fish they had caught, it was reported.

The men left on a fishing expedition on May 30, but encountered engine failure on June 1, Martinique.FranceAntilles  said.

The online publication said searches by the Trinidad and Tobago Coastguard failed to locate the missing men.

However, the Lady Debbie which was returning from towing a Dutch freighter encountered the stranded vessel and its three-member crew, took the Vincentians aboard and secured their vessel.
The Martinique tug which rescued them  then took the men home to their native country.
