SAILORS RESCUE
US Air Force: 2 badly burned Chinese fishermen airlifted to California hospital for treatment

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, May 5, 2014 10:47 PM EDT
SAN DIEGO


Two badly burned Chinese fishermen have been hoisted by U.S. Air Force helicopters off a Venezuelan skiff hundreds of miles off Mexico's Pacific coast.

Maj. Sarah Schwennesen of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona, says the two fishermen were airlifted Monday afternoon.

The fishermen were due to arrive at the University of California, San Diego's regional burn unit Monday night. Pilots flew for nine hours to recover the fishermen.

The Venezuelan fishing boat reported finding 11 sailors floating in a raft Friday. Four sailors were badly burned and two later died of their injuries.

Airmen cared for the injured after parachuting into the water Saturday and using inflatable boats to reach the Venezuelan vessel.
