Coast Guard Joint Rescue of 36 Fishermen in Pacific Ocean



The 36-member crew of the Papua New Guinea-flagged 229-foot commercial purse seiner Glory Pacific No. 8 are safe following a joint rescue 2,071 miles southwest of Hawaii, Saturday. All 36 survivors were rescued by good Samaritans aboard the 215-foot AMVER commercial fishing vessel Lomalo, registered in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, who will rendezvous with the 222-foot Papua New Guinea-flagged commercial fishing vessel Pacific Journey No.1. Their crew will take the survivors aboard and bring them to their next port of call several days from now. (U.S. Coast Guard video by Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point/Released)
