5 Missing Americans Rescued at Sea on Board Catamaran ‘The Pineapple’ in Phillipines


Five missing Americans have been found safe by the Philippine coast guard aboard the  38-foot catamaran ‘The Pineapple’. The four men and one woman are all being reported in good health. The boat originally left Guam on January 6, but failed to reach its final destination of Cebu Island in the central Philippines. The Pineapple had met with bad weather and rough seas. According to reports, the boat suffered a rudder and radio casualty that delayed the Pineapple’s voyage but it was never in danger of sinking.

A search ship guided by a spotter plane located the 38-foot (11-meter) catamaran The Pineapple after it was spotted off the southern island of Dinagat, coast guard chief Adm. Wilfredo Tamayo said. The rescuers were escorting the vessel to its original destination on central Cebu island, he said.

“They apparently had engine trouble while in rough seas,” Tamayo told The Associated Press, adding that he was awaiting other details.
