Women Lost at Sea For 5 Months Were Attacked by Tiger Sharks
Two women who were lost at sea for five months say they think they were on the brink of death when they were saved by Navy rescuers. Jennifer Appel and Tasha Fuiava were left stranded after their engine broke during what was meant to be a month-long voyage. As their boat drifted, they were twice attacked by tiger sharks. Eventually, they were seen by a fishing boat. Their dogs Zeus and Valentine looked just as joyous when the USS Ashland arrived to save them.
