Sometimes life is exactly like the movies. Three men were stranded on a deserted island several hundred miles north of Papua New Guinea after their boat capsized. The men swam two miles in the middle of the night to reach the uninhabited Micronesian island of Fanadik
After three days, a U.S. Navy plane spotted “help” written in palm leaves along with the men waving their orange life jackets and a local boat was sent to pick them up.
Incredibly, they are reportedly going to be just fine.
