A touching video of the rescue of a sailor who got stuck for two months in the middle of the sea with his dog

A touching video revealed the rescue of an Australian sailor, accompanied by his dog, after they were stranded for two months in the Pacific Ocean, and they were able to survive thanks to drinking rainwater and eating raw fish.

Tim Chaddock, 51, said in a video clip, obtained by the Australian agency “Nine News”, that he feels “very well” despite eating very little food and water.

“I have been through a very difficult ordeal at sea,” he explained in a separate video clip also obtained by Nine News.

“I just need rest and good food because I’ve been alone at sea for so long,” he added.

Tim Shaddock and his dog, Bella, set sail from the Mexican port city of La Paz in April and had planned to sail 6,000 km before docking in French Polynesia.

But he soon found himself stranded in the Pacific Ocean after huge waves damaged the boat and disabled its electronic equipment.

Shadow and Bella will soon be transferred to Mexico, according to the news station.
