Australian and his dog rescued after 3 months adrift in Pacific

An Australian sailor who had been adrift at sea with his dog for three months has been rescued by a Mexican tuna boat in international waters, the fishing vessel’s owner said.
Timothy Lyndsay Shaddock, 54, was on board his incapacitated catamaran Aloha Toa in the Pacific about 1,900km (1,200 miles) from land when the crew of the boat from the Grupomar fleet spotted them, the company said in a statement on Monday.
The company said Shaddock and his dog Bella were in a “precarious” state when found, lacking provisions and shelter. The tuna boat’s crew gave them medical attention, food and hydration, it said.
