Sailors stranded in Tasman Sea for three days rescued

Two sailors stranded in the Tasman Sea are about to take their first steps on land after a stressful ordeal.

It took three days to save the two men, John McEnallay and Keith Turner, both in their 70s, after they were stranded when their yacht was damaged during a voyage from New Zealand to Australia.

Their relatives met them out at sea earlier on Thursday and were very relieved to see them safe and well.
