Naval officer Abhilash Tomy, stranded in Indian Ocean, rescued after 3 days

Abhilash Tomy injured as storm hits Golden Globe Race

Over the next three days, Commander Tomy survived on little more than sheer grit-he could barely move to eat or drink-till he was rescued at around 1100 hrs IST on Monday.

The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) in a scathing report tabled in Parliament last month said that Boeing was favoured, because the defence ministry "enhanced" a financial bid by EADS CASA, Spain- now rebranded as Airbus Military- to include a 20 year support package.

Knox-Johnston won the inaugural Golden Globe race, becoming the first person to sail solo around the world nonstop. Friday's storm, which damaged the vessel, whipped up 70-knot winds and 14-metre (45ft) waves, and also knocked down the yacht of another competitor, Dutchman Mark Slats, twice, BBC reported. Of the 18 sailors who started the race, just 11 are still in it, per the BBC (NPR says 10). The HMAS Ballerat has a helicopter and full medical facilities onboard. "The injured officer shall be picked up in the next 16 hrs by a French vessel Osiris".

A private jet was also sent from Perth to the remote waters in the southern Indian Ocean.

Both masts on his 36ft-long (11m) classic yacht, Thuriya, were taken down by the storm and were seen hanging over the vessel's side.

Rosenstein discussed recording Trump, invoking 25th Amendment
Some analysts had suggested the Times story might have been planted by Trump allies seeking to justify a move against Rosenstein. A justice department press officer told the BBC that Mr Rosenstein's comment about secretly recording the president was a joke.

AMSA, which is coordinating the search, said the crews saw that the yacht was dismasted but did not get further information about Tomy's condition.

An Australian fisheries vessel "Osiris" is also heading towards the location.

Abhilash Tomy was rescued by a French fishing vessel, Osiris, on Monday amid an worldwide effort coordinated by Australia.

She said the ship would shift Tomy to a nearby island by evening and that later Indian navy's frigate "will take him to Mauritius for medical attention".

The 39-year-old had been taking part in an around the world solo sailing competition - the Golden Globe race - when his yacht Thuriya lost its mast in a storm on Friday.

This is a Joker who could nearly pass for a real clown, if not for that look he flashes the camera at the last second. As such, the film is meant to be darker and more experimental in tone and content than previous DC comic book films.

The yacht is in Australia's search and rescue zone 3,500 kilometers (2,200 miles) southwest of the Australian city of Perth and 3,000 kilometers southeast of the French island Reunion.

The rescue mission was jointly coordinated between Indian and Australian Navy.

He has been pulled out on a stretcher by a French fishing vessel.

The Navy said its P-8I aircraft has sighted the SV Thuriya at 7.50 am on Sunday.

Tomy has covered 52,000 miles (84,000 km) under sail while in the Indian navy, including a solo non-stop circumnavigation from Mumbai in 2012/13, it said. He said the situation was being monitored at Naval Headquarters in New Delhi, as well as by the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre at Melbourne, Australia.
