An Israeli woman and an Italian man survived on a life raft for eight days in the Arabian Sea after their yacht sank in a storm, the Indian coast guard said Tuesday. The couple, identified as Libi Belozerzki, 27, and Mori Pierpaolo, 35, set out from the Maldives on a yacht planning to sail to the Red Sea, but their boat overturned in a late monsoon storm, said Commandant Raj Putran of the Indian coast guard. Putran said ships in the area were told to look out for the missing sailors after the Rome Maritime Rescue Coordination Center lost contact with them after September 24. A Belgian tug sighted them and picked them up on October 3, he said. "The yacht had a life raft on board and they survived because they had emergency rations and water."
