Drama on the high seas as stranded sailors rescued

PUMA Ocean Racing are rescued by a giant container ship in the south Atlantic ocean after the team suffered a broken mast.

The team was more than 2,100 nautical miles from their intended destination of Cape Town, South Africa and were forced to retire from the first leg of the Volvo Ocean Race.

They motored to the remote island of Tristan da Cunha before the ship transported them to Cape Town in time for the start of the second leg.
